Tourist Destinations in the Philippines – magnificent Waterfalls

September 28th, 2014 is glad to inform that Philippines Post has released the 3rd quarter topical stamp issue about Tourist Destinations in the Philippines featuring "Waterfalls". The photos for this stamp release were provided by FUNtastic Philippines. The issue depicts following waterfalls:

Asik-asik Falls is located in Alamada town in North Cotabato with a height of 200 meters. "Asik" in Hiligaynon language means "sprinkle". Residents of Sitio Dulao in Barangay Alamada call it a natural wonder "asik- asik" because of water from rocks that sprinkle from the river beside it.

Balagbag Falls – A magnificent descend of water as it cascades to a series of rocky slopes. A 140 feet drop from the brink to the deck and 26 feet high from the catch basin to the deck. Some tourists enjoy taking a plunge from the deck down the 13 feet deep waterbed.

Merloquet Falls – Located in the interior of Barangay Sibulao, some 78 kilometers east of Zamboanga City. Merloquet Falls is a rising eco-tourism destination for nature-trippers. The lower level of the falls is not just pretty to look at, but great for relaxing too.

Tinago Falls – fabulous and very beautiful waterfall located in Iligan City Lanao del Norte. This is one of the most popular and most visited waterfalls in Iligan City known for its outstanding and mesmerizing natural beauty. Tinago means 'hidden' in local dialect and it is named so as it is hidden in deep gorge. It requires five hundred descending steps to go through in order to reach the waterfall. The water of the fall is very clean, clear and cold that cascades down into basin like pool offering great opportunities for swimming.

On the souvenir sheet Tinuy-an Falls is depicted. Tinuy-an Falls is a waterfall in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur in the southern island of Mindanao, Philippines. It is the main tourist attraction in Bislig, a city known as the Booming City by the Bay. Tinuy-an is a white water curtain that flows in three levels and is said to be the widest waterfall in the Philippines.
