Travelog: Daranak and Batlag Falls

August 1, 2012

If you wanted to escape on a busy metro to unwind or even to have a “me-time” but not making your wallet crying out loud because of the costly getaway, then Daranak and Batlag Falls could be your perfect destination to unleashed your stress and have some time for yourself, family and  even friends. Daranak and Batlag Falls are located in Brgy. Sampaloc, Tanay, Rizal, a 2-hour drive from Metro Manila, a relaxing weekend spree at a very affordable price.
See the beauty of nature on this government-owned park, which is also a part of the Laguna watershed. For only P20 Entrance Fee and P350+ rental fee of the cottages you will enjoy the tranquility of the place. By the way, you have to bring your own food for you to nosh-up since there will be no available comfort food within the area. Overnight is prohibited.
Ohhh-some! Serene. Beautiful. Breath-taking. Daranak Falls has a picturesque view that will definitely wash-away all the negative mantra that you have throughout your life.
Daranak Falls is most likely of the “pang-masa” area, well, because of the super-duper cheap entrance fee most of the people are staying here, crowded/peak hours starts at 10am onwards.
But if you wanted a little more private vicinity, on the top of Daranak Falls, Batlag Falls is situated. But then, additional charges are applied. You may refer on the photo above for the additional fees.
Yeah, what you read/seen is right, there’s another entrance fee for you to enter the Batlag Falls.
But if you see the scenic view of the Batlag Falls you would totally forget the P50 you’ve paid for. 
The place is soooo clean and the water is hmmm… cold! Batlag Falls is cleaner and cozier than the first one though Daranak Falls is much bigger than the latter one. At Batlag Falls you can have an overnight stay.
I super love this place! Clean. Serene. Fresh. Big. A very beautiful gift from Mother Earth!
Oh boy, this place is also remarkable to me because this was the place where my first-ever photo-shoot with a professional model took place. Of course, a big thanks to Ailes and friends for having me on this awesome place. A great place with a very great people is indeed a great moments to be remembered!

  4. I've been there once when I was a kid. I think there's also a cave near that falls but I forgot the name of the cave.
    It's so pretty.

  5. This is actually a great pitch, as I only live not too far from Antipolo. This would be great for a potential family outing. :)
