  • Climb Uphill And Be Enchanted by Batlag...

    We reached Batlag Falls by foot from Daranak Falls. We opted to cross the makeshift wooden bridge instead of wading through the river to reach the other side of the mountain. Since Batlag Falls is in a private property, we had to pay another P20/person to be allowed access to the compound. Then, we walked uphill through a paved slope until we...

    Commuting to Tanay

    by santeria01 Written Apr 12, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took a jeepney ride from Ever Mall at Cainta. The jeepney ride costs us 32 pesos (I think) each. The travel time took us about an hour and a half. And it's already nighttime! Which means it isn't rush hour anymore. Imagine how much time it would take if the streets are still congested.

    Anyways, we had a private vehicle going back home. And it only took us around 45 minutes.

    Offer Your Food/ Drinks To Others

    It is customary for Filipinos to offer their food or drinks to other people near them before they themselves take anything. Usually, the persons you offered food/drink will not really take anything, but just smile and thank you. Your mere act will be construed to mean your respect and regard for others. If by chance they accept your food/drink, they will likely offer something else for you,too.

    Daranak Falls

    Daranak Falls is known to mountaineers going to Tanay. This must be their cherry on the ice cream after a laborious climb. I also heard this place was famous for movies with scenes that require the hero to jump over the falls. hahaha. Costs around 20 pesos to get in, you can also bring your own food as they have tables for family picnics. I saw a family brought over a whole Lechon! yum yum!
