I was born and raised in Los Banos Laguna, the town just right at the foot of Mt. Makiling. With my outgoing perspective, it was natural to discover this secluded sanctuary. The exact location of this hidden falls in Mt. Makiling is a secret. Due to conservation purposes, I wouldn’t divulge the exact directions to get there, though I have one clue. This hidden falls in Mt.

You’ll be amazed with the lush natural rock formations and the life forms surrounding this hidden falls in Mt. Makiling.

You’ll not be alone in this paradise,  you’ll be able to spot some shrimps, fishes and cone snails, though there are occasional leeches creeping from the rock crevices so beware.  One thing I cannot forget about my trip here. Its ice-cold waters! The temperature seeped unto my bones that caused minor chills! Though eventually, that same temperature relieved the exhaustion from the uphill climb. Definitely, this hidden falls in Mt. Makiling lets you in tune with nature.
