Day trek to Mount Romelo and Buruwisan Falls located in the municipality of Siniloan, Laguna.
We have visited Tulay na Bato Falls recently. Thought it was the end of it? Not just yet!
More than a kilometer away from Tulay na Bato Falls are a series of cascading waterfalls over rocky surface.
The trail to the cascades is a real leg-stretcher. Along the fern-lined path are shrubs and thorny bushes and tall decades-old trees.
This trail takes you to not one, not two, but several cascades of beautiful crystal water. Rushing waters leap from the edge, cascading down the rock wall and landing in churning, misty turmoil in the pool below.
This multi-tiered cascade that crashes lou ...
We were supposed to go to Corrigidor this weekend as most of us haven't been there yet but the cheapest package tour available was almost 2000 pesos on a day trip alone. I reckon I could already visit a few tourist spots with this budget so I announced a rushed day hike to Mt. Romelo instead, which promises a short day hike and a chance to see several waterfalls.

Among the mountains of Southern Tagalog that are left untouched by my itchy feet is Mt. Romelo. This mountain, also called by some mountaineers as Mt.

Kaya naman, I chose this mountain to end the month of September, a muddy and dirty month-ender hike.

Nested at the foot of Sierra Madre is the town of Siniloan, the north-easternmost town of the province of Laguna. It is home to numerous waterfalls that lie along its different river systems, thus it is only befitting to be called "The Waterfalls Sanctuary of Eastern Laguna."
There are at least thirteen known waterfalls in Siniloan and perhaps more that are yet to be exposed to public attention. The most popular ones are tucked in the slope of Mount Romelo, the southwest border of Sierra Madre Mountain Range.
With summit elevation of only 240 meters above sea level, trekking Mount Romelo ...
