Majestic Majayjay

Our tropa has landed to another adventure. This time we're off to Majayjay, Laguna. I've always wanted to go to this place long time ago, way back when I was still a trainee (so that's nearly 4 yrs from now). Finally, it has materialized..





We took the back door route. We passed the provinces of Rizal (Tanay, Baras, Pililia, etc) and Laguna (Siniloan, Paete, etc). Quite a long journey but I enjoyed it much. Gusto ko yung maraming nakikita. 

We stayed overnight. Even if  were not really prepared for this journey (try to imagine going on a camping without the essentials), good thing there's an array of store that sells everything. And kung di mo feel magcamping pero feel mo mag-stay overnight, may mga rooms for rent sila! Ganun ka-commercialized ang Majayjay. 

We rented a camping tent, a huge one, para magkasya ang 6 na tao plus bought kahoy na panggatong, para sa bonfire at pangluto. 

down to the falls

Sarap sana magswim pero super lamig ng tubig, so dip-dip lang. Buhay na buhay ang tubig sa falls, halos tangayin na kami. Unlike any other falls, di sya madulas pero mabato. At ang tubig, super linaw!



It even rained but not that hard, enough para pumasok lahat sa tent at magsiksikan. At ng gumabi na, gosh, pitch black! As in wala ka makikita o maaninag man lang. At dahil malamig ang hangin at mabisang pampaantok ang marinig ang lagaslas ng tubig, we went to sleep. Except for some na nalabanan ang antok at nagawang uminom (sayang, na-miss ko ang The Bar..)

Kinaumagahan, naglakad-lakad kami. Wandered the beauty of nature. Nagphoto shoot sa falls at sa hanging bridge. 




On our way going home, we took the south road. We passed the provinces of Quezon (Lucban, Lucena, etc), Batangas and Laguna all the way to SLEX then Manila. 

Sayang, di ako nakahanap o nakabili man lang ng souvenir items from Majayjay (kung meron man nagtitinda ng ganun..). When we passed Lucban, I bought my mom the famous Lucban longganisa, and buko pie when we passed Laguna. 

It's an adventure I won't ever forget. Daming first time memories especially the camping. I'm gonna do it again. Sa ngayon, I'm looking na for other falls to explore dito sa Luzon.

    1. Malapit lang sa San Pablo. You can take a jeepney from San Pablo to Liliw. Then tricycle to Majayjay. Then jeepney to Taytay Falls. ☺

  2. Leonrap: kailangan magbusy-busyhan kaya maraming larga.. ayoko ng nababakante, baka kung ano ang maisipan kong gawin sa sarili ko.. :p

    Kamila: naku, super layo nito.. pag pumunta ka dito, feeling mo anytime may susulpot na NPA at kikidnapin ka. magubat sya. baliko ang mga daan at sobrang lamig ng hangin. try mo pumunta minsan.
