Side Trip to Taytay Falls

After our Pahiyas and Kamay ni Hesus trip in the morning, we all decided to push through our initial itinerary for that day, to go to Majayjay, Laguna and take a dip at Taytay Falls.

Majayjay, Laguna is just a jeepney away from Lucban. We initially took a trike from the town to get us to the jeepney terminal.From there, the jeepneys will drop us by the falls. Our group got separated to the others and the tricycle driver told us that he'll get us to the falls for an additional fee. Plus he will fetch us at about an hour to get us back to Lucban. We agreed and we all just met at the entrance of the falls where you will pay P20 entrance fee to Taytay Falls.

The entrance and parking area is a large vacant lot where people had established some sari sari stores for the overnighters. there is also a small house where you can use their bathroom for a fee. It also has a videoke machine for those who want to sing their hearts out. There is a small stairway beside a sari sari store going down. This is the pathway to the falls.

 The trail here is cemented and is an easy trek. Trees cover the area and it is very refreshing walking that path. After a while of walking, you will hear water rushing, telling you that you are near the falls already. We already saw the waters but we continued going deeper to get to the falls. There is also a hanging bridge there but I failed to go since I also wanted to see the falls first.

As we got to the end of the trail, the pretty waterfalls came into view. It was one of the most beautiful falls I've ever seen. The water rushes from Mt. Banahaw going down there. It creates mists as it hits the water below. The water itself is very cool and is very nice if you have a very tired feet from all the walking hours earlier.The rocks on the side are very nice to take pictures off. It is a good place to relax and unwind.

 People there camp and stay over night. I think it is a good place to camp since it is a very peaceful place and you'd be very close to nature.

You should really see for yourself to describe this place. It is my favorite part of the trip and if ever I'd go back, I'll dip into the cold waters that time!
