Our two friends from Manila came to visit us, so we were thinking of where can my wife and I will take them. It was raining Saturday afternoon so we can't really decide, until my nephew gave us an idea.. BURUWISAN FALLS! His friends already made it a couple of times to Mt. Romelo where they stayed for a couple of days around 2 to 3 days, imagine they have to have food for 3 days, they have to pack canned goods, rice, water etc. which they will have to carry on their way up.

Sunday morning, we were decided, we will climb Mt. Romelo regardless of the weather, as the saying goes "Bahala na si Batman."

The day of the hike

Sunday at exactly 9:00am in the morning, we were at the foot of the mountain. It's still raining when we reached the nipa huts where we will pay and have our name registered. We have to cross a swamp before we set our foot to the actual start of the trek. The trail was muddy, really muddy because it was raining a couple of days already. It was my first time experience  to climb a mountain, as well as my wife so we really don't know what to expect. It took us 3 agonizing hours to make it. We were really amazed not just because of the scene, not just because of Buruwisan Falls alone, but we were amazed because we actually made it! It was really hard, I can't even take out my camera in my bag because the trail was really steep plus the fact that it was really slippery, and muddy.

One mode of transportation is the horse. You have an option to either walk or rent a horse for 300 pesos to carry you and your luggage so as to make the climb easier. Imagine the mud you have to set your foot into was near our knees already. It will take a lot of patience and endurance for you to make it to the top. A lot of mountaineers were also heading to the falls because it's Holy Week. They will stay a couple of days to the camp site just beside a promptly flowing river on top of Buruwisan Falls.

So pack light and just bring what is necessary.

There is Buruwisan Falls, the beautiful and majestic God's creation. Not everyone had that chance to be amazed by nature. It gives you the feeling of serenity because of the sound of cascading water from the falls. It makes us forget the arduous hike. The falls cascades smoothly against the long vines on the falls itself. It is a good spot not only for photography but for rappelling as well.

It took us 3 long hours to make it to the top but we just stayed for 3 hours to capture photos, rest, eat and bathe in its catch basin, then we start our trail again downhill. It was a very tiring, muscle engaging hike but it was really worth it, to be able to be awed by its beauty.

We were really awed by the vastness of the forest, the falls, the nature. I came to realize that how many mountains were sacrificed to give us civilization. The subdivisions and the shopping malls we were all enjoying. Man moved the mountains for civilization but lets not forget that the mountains have the power to move man.

    1. hi nikki! il advise you not to go this weekends. Medyo maulan dito sa laguna this past few days, sigurado maputik ang trail paakyat. about sa way papunta dito, may terminal ng JAM or HM liner sa buendia aloong LRT papuntang sta. cruz, laguna. From sta.cruz laguna may mga jeep going to siniloan. Pagdating mo ng siniloan alam na ng mga tricycle driver papunta dito. May receiving area sila paakyat ng bundok. About naman sa tour guide, sorry wala ako contact nos nila, pero may campsite naman dun kung gusto nyo mag-stay overnight :)

  15. Looking at the photos, nag flashback sa akin mga memories ko dyan sa Mt. Romelo. My first climb was 1993. Dalawang tent lang kami non sa campsite. Then, IIRC, naka 7 akyat ako until 2001 and last. Nakakadismaya lang kasi naging commercialized na sya. Yung tuktok ng dalawang burol (tawag namin dati don ay "Depression") may tindahan na sa tuktok. Pwede ka umorder ng soda after mo humataw paakyat. Sa campsite mismo may mga kubo na pwede rentahan. Yung batis sa ibaba ang dumi na. Sana ma-save pa ang bundok, Sayang naman.
