Abaga Falls

Abaga Falls is a waterfall and ecosystem located approximately 15km southwest of Iligan City on the island of Mindanao, Philippines. The height of Abaga Falls is approximately twice that of the more famous Maria Christina falls also located within the proximity of Iligan City. Unlike Maria Christina falls however, which is fed by the Agus river, the water source for Abaga Falls is the product of several underground springs which flow into the top Abaga falls via several tributaries.

Unlike like the more popular Maria Cristina falls, human access to Abaga Falls is severely limited due to a current lack of regularly maintained roads as well as the fact that a moderate amount of walking is required to reach the base of the falls. Unfortunately, this level of isolation has not protected the ecosystem from damage due to deforestation and over-hunting.
