Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte

Kapatagan is one of the 22 municipalities of the province of Lanao del Norte of Region X.  It has a total land area of 25,048.41 hectares.  On the southern and eastern sides of the locality are mountains which serve as natural barriers protecting the Municipality from typhoons.  Offsetting the mountain is the presence of flat coastal lands and valley. Kapatagan has some rolling plains. It has five (5) major rivers that flow to Panguil Bay, namely: Maranding, Panoloon, Butadon, Kidalos and Balili . These rivers sometimes, especially during the rainy season, overflow causing floods resulting to destruction and even death of farm and land animals. The two famous waterfalls from Kapatagan are:

Cathedral Falls.  Located at barangay Cathedral of Kapatagan, Lanao del Norte. It is a sight to behold.  It is bounded with unique rock formations resembling cathedral posts.

Sta. Cruz Falls of Kapatagan is said to be mysteriously enthralling as it is located about 4-5 kilometers away from the highway where one must be brave enough to trek for almost two hours of unpaved terrains, natural up and down slopes, climbing on a mossy and slippery hill, rocky grounds, and even wrestle to several river flows just to reach the waterfall of fascination.
