Louisiana Laguna- Chasing Waterfalls
A day of full of fun and adventure with friends and new found travel buddies/friends.I really enjoy the entire day , from Sta.Cruz top load experience to Louisiana waterfalls chasing .. or should I say marathon? it’s four falls in a row, 8 hours of trekking and rappelling.
Edz, Rollie, Icey, Yani , Bicks , Alex , Grezel , John, Jen , si kuyang tahimik… di ko lam name nia 🙂
Aliw Falls is one of the Water falls you can find in Louisiana Laguna . A guide is required, but they don’t have fix rate yet , so just be generous and give enough amount of money to your guide. From the registration area , Aliw falls is just 30-45 minutes away, and the trail going to Aliw falls is easy,but muddy during rainy season,but the best time to visit this water falls is during rainy days,so just be ready and enjoy the free mud pack 🙂
Registration Fee : Free
Here are some of our pics last Jan 17, 2016 .
Say hello to Edz, my long time friend, first time mahirap sa gala nya 😀
Sino ang naiba:D
What’s next….Talay Falls!
After taking some pictures in Aliw Falls, we went directly to Kap’s house to register for Talay, Hidden and Hulugan Waterfalls.
Fare: 15.00 php each
Registration Fee : 10.00 php
Guide Fee : ” kusang loob”
Talay Falls is just a 30-45 minutes away from Kap’s house, the trail going to Talay is easy.
Going up to second level of Talay Falls.
The Talay falls has a small and deep basin/pool with cold water,the water is not inviting us to swim , so we just decided not to,and just go directly to next waterfalls – The Hidden Falls.
Time check :Lunch Time
Sarap ng lunch nila ,haha.
Kame, lunch ng group. Itlog, bread , and tuna.
I cant wait to see the Hulugan Falls , so after some time, we’re to trail.
Hulugan Falls is one the most picturesque waterfalls I’ve seen. I wish we had a “alone moment” . The area is too crowded during our visit. So if you want have a me time moment here, be there weekdays by 6am. The trail going to the falls is steep and muddy during rainy days so make sure to wear proper footwear.
How to get here :
Ride a bus from Manila to Pagsawitan Sta. Cruz
Travel hours : 2.5 hrs
Fare: 140.00 php
From Pagsawitan , ride a jeepney bound to Barangay Salvador in Luisiana
Travel time is 30-40 minutes.
You can ask the driver to drop you in Barangay Salvador, from there you can walk, or ride a trike going to Kap’s house to register .
Fare: 15.00 php each
To Aliw Falls : You can ask the jeepney driver to drop you off sa jump off papuntang Aliw, Para di na doble yung trike fee. Pero may mga tricycle from Hulugan jump off to Aliw falls, for 15php each.
My own Expenses for the entire Day : 980.00 php – Manila- Laguna – Fees – Laguna – Manila ( that includes all the katakawan sa daan,lahat ng makita binibili..haha ).
Bus last trip : 9pm
Barangay Phone number:
0921-375-5825 & 0928-975-9752
Talay ,Hidden and Hulugan falls Guide Fee : No fix rate yet . Kusang loob n lng po tayong mag bigay. We gave him 500php ( 50php each) sulit na yun,kase mababait ang mga guides doon.
After a long day, Pig out time, and the perfect place to eat:
” Calle Arco”
