    If you can stay up all night, then better buy firewood sold at the stores of taytay before treking to majayjay falls. Although you can go back and forth from your camp site to the stores, it is still a tiring walk. Firewood cost 50 per bundel while gas cost around 30 pesos.

    Dress Code: swimming wear top with hiking attire. (shorts and slippers)

Majayjay Local Customs

  • Drying "Palay" On The Roads

    It has been a practice for locals to spread and dry their "palay" (unpolished rice) grains on the road, even on national roads, unmindful of the motorists' welfare. They usually spread the palay early in the morning and put them back in the sacks by late afternoon.
