The twin fallsDuring the rainy season, most of my trips would center on places where rain would not pose a major hindrance in enjoying our preferred destination.
Thus, we traveled to Nagcarlan, Laguna to check out the so-called twin falls, Bunga Falls.
We departed from the Cubao area in a Lucena-bound bus. After two hours we alighted at the San Pablo junction and rode a tricycle to the jeepney terminal on Inocencio Barleta St. near the San Pablo City plaza.
We then boarded a Nagcarlanbound jeepney and were dropped off at the Nagcarlan town hall compound.
As we sped towards the Bunga Falls area in another tricycle, we passed by two road entrances with directional tarpaulins and arrived mod at a large parking area near our destination.
Here’s a tip: arrange for the tricycle driver to pick you up at a specified time as the parking area is far from the highway.
Upon entering the Bunga Falls compound, you will be required to pay an entrance fee before descending to the falls.
If you want a convenient place where you can briefly stay or keep your stuff, there are several cottages to choose from, for a fee.
The water from Bunga Falls is naturally cold. It is very deep nearer the waterfall, so those who are not that skillful in swimming may opt to stay in the shallow areas.
After a refreshing dip, we climbed back to the parking area. You can change clothes and refresh yourselves at the barangay hall.
We rode a trike to the Nagcarlan-Rizal Road and ate lunch at Ralphjoy’s Restobar. If time permits, you could visit the famous Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery a stone’s throw from the restaurant. (Excerpted from http://largabista.blogspot.com) (Story/Photos by: Gerbs de Castro)
