There are lots of beautiful waterfalls in Laguna. Each falls has its unique beauty, giving tourists an spectacular waterfalls experience. One of the famous waterfalls now in the province is Hulugan Waterfalls.

Hulugan Waterfalls

Hulugan Falls is specifically located in Barangay San Salvador, Luisiana, which is also the jump off point or entry point. The town of Luisiana lies between Pagsanjan and Lucban. It’s 3-4 hours drive from Manila.

At the jump off point, everyone is mandatory to pay registration fee and to hire a guide. At this time, there’s no fixed rate for guides. Near the registration area, you can find different sari-sari stores that sell goodies and refreshing drinks. There are also available restroom/ CR in the area

The trail going to waterfalls is easy. The first 500 meters trail is concrete and the rest is rough roads. The only challenge is during rainy season. The road gets muddy and slippery.  It’s advisable to wear trekking shoes or sandals. There are areas in the trail that will test the endurance of  your knee. Expect some assaults going back to entry point.

What I recommend is to go to the Hulugan Falls early in morning. You would appreciate more the beauty of the place if you won’t see a lot of people taking pictures near the falls. Hulugan Falls was already featured in GMA7 travel show’s  Biyahe Ni Drew. It became more famous because of this show. Photos of the falls are now circulating around the social media like Facebook and Instagram.  Expect a crowd during the weekends.
