Mt. Romelo | Chasing the Waterfalls

Buruwisan Falls
The province of Laguna is lying and is part of the southern Luzon region. This province, together with Batangas and Cavite, is one of the centers for mountaineering because of its gorgeous flora and fauna; like Mt. Romelo which is situated in Siniloan, Laguna. This mountain bears a lot in terms of natural beauty and greatness. Let’s start with the amazing and cool ambiance, refreshing green surroundings, fresh air, and the fantastic lashing waterfalls. 

Mount Romelo
First part was crossing a calm river.

Mount Romelo
The terrain of Romelo is a long, simple but slippery and muddy; it serves as the trail for the hikers, locals and the animals, like horses and carabaos in transporting local products, like fruits and vegetables. The trail is long and composed of fork trails, with grasses on the sides. If lost, you can ask the locals if where’s the right way. Its trail type got a 2 rating out of 9 in terms of difficulty.

Special Feature | If you’re looking for place with a photo perfect background, to relax your muscles and swimming on the cool water, this is the perfect spot for you. If you’re also looking for an extreme and challenge, you can try canyoneering, wall climbing and rappelling on the 180 feet Buruwisan Falls located just few meters from the camp site. And few meters from Buruwisan falls, you’ll find its extension waterfalls, the 70 feet Lanzones Falls.

The campsite in Romelo is a wide, clean area near the relaxing river and the waterfalls. The sounds of the lashing water gives a relaxing feeling while resting inside the tent.

Since the weather was not good when we left the camp site, as expected the current of the water by river to the jump off was strong; a bit challenging but easy to overcome by sharing our hands to others.

How to Get Here | We chartered a van going to the Public Market in Famy, Laguna. Rode in a tricycle going to the jump off. Same area, we rode in a van going back to the Metro.
