Chasing waterfalls on your bucket list? Why not make it happen! Go on an adventure in Laguna, solo or with your travel buddies!
Unfortunately we went there on a hot summer weekend so it is extra hard for us in trekking, there are more crowd than weekdays and also the waterfalls are bit dry.
So here’s the guide to my waterfalls adventure in Laguna:
Taytay falls, Majayjay, Laguna
The second most famous waterfall in Laguna next to pagsanjan falls.
DO NOT GO HERE ON A WEEKEND! I REPEAT, DO NOT GO HERE ON A WEEKEND!!!!
It can be a CROWDED POND OF ITIK on a weekend… Hahaha!
What to wear:
- sandals, aqua shoes (slippers.. it’s okay but you’ll have difficulty in climbing on boulders)
- leggings, shorts
- any comfy clothes (be ready to get wet with water and sweat. lol)
Hidden Falls, Luisiana, Laguna
The not so hidden anymore falls. Lol
The way to the hidden falls is dangerous and very exhausting so be careful!
I actually forgot the name of this one. 😦
Swimming in this waterfall is prohibited.
The highlight of the trip!
Too sad the fall is a bit dry but we still enjoyed our trip! 🙂
In case you run out of drinking water, there is an available water source near the small cave.
