BUNTOT PALOS FALLS: Exploring Hidden Falls of Laguna (Part 2)

By Jalene B.D.S.

 

Buntot Palos is one of the grandest falls of Laguna towering 80 meters tall. The duration of the trail going to Buntot palos falls takes 1.5 – 2 hours only. You can start the trail either at Pangil, Ecopark or at Balian Outpost.

 

Robin, a college friend of mine, is a resident of Pangil, Laguna. He invited us (my brothers and I) to go to their place and visit Buntot Palos Falls. We stayed at their house and ate a light breakfast.

It took us 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach Buntot Palos Falls. According to his father, the place is usually crowded on Saturdays or Sundays. But on our visit, we’re blessed because there’s few visitors of this majestic falls and most of them are the locals.
