Buruwisan Falls (Siniloan[FAMY], Laguna)


The Buruwisan Falls

Amaze with the beauty of this waterfalls. Also enjoy swimming with her fresh water. (Nakakatuwa kasi ng maligo kami dito umagang umaga matapos kami mag-breakfast, iyun kailangan mong baliktarin ang paniwala mo gaya ng wag mo isiping malamig. Iyun nakakigo talaga ang ilan sa amin habang yung iba nagkasya na lang na panoorin kami).

Just take my simple advise. If you went to this place be aware to disposed your garbage to the right place.










The Group at its posed in the trail down the Buruwisan Falls

The trail down the falls is difficult because of its slope. It is better to walk with four feet for your safety.

Group Pic at Buruwisan Falls

Take some look at the picture, some are wet, the other is still wearing their jacket. Know why? Because if you take the risk of taking a bath early in the morning, you will find yourself freezing.

(kakatuwa talaga kasi ang lamig tapos, I promise na maliligo ako kaya yun, need to reverse orthodox).



The Lansones Falls

From Buruwisan Falls, you can follow the path of the water until you see the water junction path. Follow that water until you find this falls.

This falls is not good as Buruwisan falls but for a matter of seing another falls, try to find this falls.





The Batya-batya Falls

They call this falls as batya-batya because above that falling water is a basin of water (in tagalog, batya).

In this falls, you can also enjoy swimming or just stare at it and take some picture.
To go there just follow the path of the water in Buruwisan (against the flow of water).

The picture resembles a happy moment of trek down the jump off point.





Some Advise of Hike to Buruwisan Falls at Mt. Romelo, Siniloan, Laguna:

1. Prepare all your necessary needs such as:
**Tents (If you decide to stay over night. In case you forgot to bring tent, there are
some cottage in the camping site at Buruwisan Falls).
**Food (of course to survive, lol. In case you run-out of food, there are some stores at
the camping site but beware: price are twice of its original price)
**Cooking utensils
**Personals(clothes, lunch box, alcohol, tissue, some emergency medicine)

2. Packed all your things in a backpack camping bag. (Avoid handbags and be prepare
to a slippery trail but last time we are so lucky of having a friendly trail up to
campsite)
3. Go to Legarda Street, below Nagtahan Bridge(correct me if I'm wrong) is
"Raymond Transportation bus station(Telephone number is +632-7339380)". Ride a bus going to Infanta, Quezon and tell the conductor
you point to Famy, Laguna. Every hour, 24 hours a day the bus left going Infanta so you will not
bother of catching a bus ride. Bus fare for aircon is more 100
pesos and for ordinary is less 100 pesos.)
4. As you arrive at Famy, you can buy some fruits at some fruit stand there or you
buy additional supplies. From that point (Famy), ride a tricycle and tell the driver
you are going to Buruwisan Falls. Fare is 15 pesos per head.
5. There is a big sign board there saying "Welcome to Buruwisan Falls". Head down
and walk through that path down till you see a small bridge.
6. At that point, in your left is a water path like a canal(the came from their
irrigation. Walk through that water path till you see a cemented road.
7. Follow that path till you see a nursery of trees in your left(Ask for a guide there,
is about 200 pesos).
8. Cross the small river at your right and look for the "jump off point to Buruwisan".
(Ask some folks there)
9. Register at the jump off point. Also pay 20 pesos per head.
10. Before going to hike, check first your things. (Is your shoes is fix, slipper is not
advisable).

The rest is yours. Enjoy!

Happy: Yes so happy because I really enjoy the adventure and the place(the folks said, there are 8 falls at that mountain range. Some are Buruwisan, Lansones, Batya-batya, Sampaloc falls, etc).

Negative: Some of the campers, uses soap in washing their plates which is in fact they must know that "By avoiding the use of soap at the river is one way of preserving our environment".

We must also avoid loiterring(some of them left their mineral bottles huh!). There is a responsibility there, that you must bring back your garbage to the jump off point.


Note: It is ethical to greet everybody when we are in the mountain.
It is NOT ethical to point a flash light in face of the other.

Magandang araw Kalimutaw!

Napadaan lang po. Maraming salamat sa pagpromote ng Buruwisan lalo na ang pagsasabing iwasan ang pagkakalat dito.

Ako po ay tubong Siniloan, Laguna at 3 beses na ring nasilayan ang ganda nang Buruwisan, Lansones, at Batya-Batya. Nawa po ay dumami pa ang katulad ninyo na nagpo-promote na ingatan ito at pangalagaan.

Tip lang po pag ibig nyong mabawasan ang gastos sa pamasahe:

1. maari nyo pong tanggalin ang pagbaba ng bus sa Famy, Laguna at diretso po kayong bumaba sa Km.3, Siniloan, Laguna kung saan nagsisimula ang paglalakbay patungong Buruwisan Falls.

2. sa pag-uwi, maari na po kayong mag-abang ng bus sa Km.3 upang di na mamasahe ng mahal papuntang Famy. Maari po kayong magtanong sa may KM3 Restaurant kung saan sila maaring maghintay ng bus pa-Maynila. Kung minsan po kasi may mga tricycle driver na sasabihan pa kayo na sa Famy na sumakay para kumita sila pero maari naman po kayong doon na mismo sa Km.3 sumakay dahil ito po ay national road/hi-way at sadyang dinadaanan ng bus.

Sana po ay maisipan nyo muling bumalik sa Siniloan. :-)

HELLO SIRS AND MAMS!

BAGUHAN LANG PO AKO SA PAGHA-HIKING.
WE HAVE A TEAM LIKE OTHER GROUP HIKERS,AND OUR FIRST TRY OF IT WAS IN FAMY LAGUNA,(JUST SHARING)IT HAPPENED TO BE SO MUDDY NIGHT TREK,BECAUSE OF RAIN. WE THOUGHT IT WAS EASY FOR US BECAUSE OTHER MOUNTAINEERS SAID THAT MT.ROMELO IS THE BEST MOUNTAIN TO CLIMB FOR FIRST TIMERS LIKE US,BUT BECAUSE OF HAVING NOT ENOUGH FLASH LIGHTS,GEARS,SANDALS OR SHOES,TEMPORARY BAGS SO THATS WHY WE FELT UNCOMFORTABLE ON THE TREK. BUT THEN,WE ENJOYED IT SO MUCH.WE LAUGH ON EACH PART WE FELL OFF THE GROUND CAUSE OF SLIPPERY MUD WE ENCOUNTERED.. FOR ME, MOUNTAINEERING IS MORE THAN JUST CLIMBING HIGH PEEKS,IT IS THE WAY TO ENJOY A DIFFERENT COLOR OF LIFE AND TO KNOW ABOUT NATURE ITS GREATNESS AND HUGENESS.. SOBRANG SARAP PLA MAGHIKE AS LONG AS YOU BOTH ENJOY IT,NOT KNOWING HOW FAR OR HIGH A MOUNTAIN IS.

NUNG DEC.21,2009 UNG FIRST PANIK NMEN NG MT.ROMELO..

MADAMI NA NGA ANG KALAT DUN COMPARE SA IBANG MOUNTAINS. SANA PO INGATAN NATIN ANG MGA MOUNTAINS PARA SA MGA SUSUNOD PANG HIKERS.

KAHIT GANO KILALA ANG GRUPO MO,KUNG SISIRAIN MO LANG ANG KALIKASAN,BAGUHAN KA PA DIN.
