  • 5 Waterfalls Near Manila that You Must Visit
  • Aside from the beaches that are a few hours away from the hustle and bustle of the city, there are a lot of waterfalls near Manila that would give every wanderer a place where they could relax and be one with nature.  The trek or hike en route to the waterfalls may be a challenge for the beginners out there, but they surely will be rewarded with the sight and the feeling of the cold waters cascading down the mountains.

    To those who are looking for a quick weekend getaway, here are 5 waterfalls which are just a few hours away from the city. (In no particular order)

    1. Daranak Falls in Tanay, Rizal

    The 14-meter high Daranak Falls is popular to both local and foreign tourists who want to experience the cool waters from the mountains especially during the summer. It is located at the foot of the mountains of Tanay, surrounded by vegetation, enchanting waterfalls, ponds, and rivers. Cottages and tables are up for rent in the area (P100-300). You may choose to buy snacks in the area, but it is recommended that you bring your own packed lunch.

    How to get there: From Starmall in EDSA Shaw, take an FX (P70) or a jeepney (P53) heading to Tanay. The terminal is located near MRT Shaw and in front of Starmall EDSA. Hop off at the Tanay Public Market Transport Terminal and head straight to Daranak Falls Tricycle Terminal (PATODA Riders). The tricycle ride is a P200/trip and could accommodate a maximum of 4 people per tricycle.

     

     

    2. Pagsanjan Falls (aka Magdapio Falls) in Cavinti, Laguna

    Pagsanjan Falls is easily one of the most famous summer destinations in the country. Although it is located in Cavinti, Laguna, it is tagged “Pagsanjan Falls” as the jump-off point to get to the falls is in Pagsanjan. The falls boasts of the cold water which gives people who stand underneath the cascades a back massage. Some would recommend visiting the area during the rainy season as the rapids will be perfect for people looking for thrill. Visitors may rent a boat or a banca for P1250-P1500/person, inclusive of the roundtrip boat ride, entrance fees, life vests, and a trip to the Devil’s Cave.

    How to get there: Ride a bus from Buendia in Taft or EDSA going to Sta. Cruz (fare starts at P140), and take a jeep to Pagsanjan (P12). Ask to be dropped off at the tourism office in the town plaza.

     

    3. Buntot Palos Falls in Pangil, Laguna

     Situated in Pangil, Laguna, Buntot Palos Falls is also called “Hidden Falls” by the locals as it is hidden in the mountains, and requires tourists to take a 2 to 3-hour trek to reach. Standing at 80 meters, it is also considered as one of the grandest falls in the country. It is best for tourists to visit the place during the summer since aside from the trails being a bit easier (less muddy and slippery), the cascade of water isn’t as strong as it is during the rainy season.

    How to get there: Ride a bus from EDSA which is headed to Sta. Cruz and get off at the end terminal. Take a jeepney to Siniloan, and go down at the Barangay Balian Outpost where you register and ask for a guide (P300 for a group of 5).

     

    4. Ambon Ambon Falls and Malagaslas Falls in Laurel, Batangas

    Beat the summer hear at the twin falls of Laurel, Batangas. It’s a 30-minute walk from the jump-off point in Sitio Salipit, but as soon as you reach the vicinity, you could go from one falls to the other via a short trek. Cottages (P300) and tables (P100) are up for rent to those who want to dine in the area. Aside from that, the place also features a videoke, food stalls, and other amenities.

    How to get there: From Cubao or Pasay, ride a Tanauan or Lipa bus and hop off at the Tanauan City Bus Terminal. From there, take a tricycle to the city market and board a jeep which will take you to Laurel. After going down at the public market, ride a tricycle and tell the driver that you are headed to Ambon Ambon Falls.

     

    5. Kaytitinga Falls in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan

    Kaytitinga Falls is a perfect sidetrip to those who also plan or have already gone to the summit of Mt. Balagbag. The waterfalls may be challenging because of its rockiness, but it surely is rewarding, looking at the waters cascading in the most magnificent way.

    How to get there: Take a bus from EDSA Cubao to Tungkong Mangga (P45-P50) where you will find jeepneys headed to Licao-Licao (P27). From there, start walking to the Veterans where you will see the route to Kaytitinga Falls. You may also opt to ride a tricycle to the Veterans (P25). Start walking to the Helipad where you will have to register.
