Just 31 kilometers east of Cagayan de Oro City(30min to 1 hour ride) in Barangay San Isidro, municipality of Jasaan houses green forest slightly touched by man (cement road), a magnificent Sagpulon Falls nests. Has 100 feet waterfall drop with an icy cold basin below for travellers to enjoy.
For safety, they offer a for rent lifebouy(salbabida) and a life jacket so you can freely swim around the water basin without hesitation. You can also bring your own food & drinks inside, but make sure you won’t forget to have a trash bag in your carry for your garbage, bring it as soon as you leave the premise, and be responsible.
A perfect weekend getaway from the bustling life in the city is within reach.

Tinago is a Filipino term meaning "hidden", the falls being hidden in a deep ravine. Approximately five hundred steps descend on trekking in the falls which is called winding staircase.
The falls is high, its very cold waters cascading beautifully into a deep and calm basin-like pool which appears to be a blue-colored lagoon. Under the falls is a small cave where people can enter and listen to the rumbling waters. Of course this one has a legend too. You can easily read through the internet.
