The province of Laguna is lying and is part of the southern Luzon region. This province, together with Batangas and Cavity, is one of the centers for mountaineering activity because of its gorgeous flora and fauna; lke 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.
The trail of Romelo is a long, simple but slippery and muddy because it serves as the trail of the hikers, locals and the animals, like horses and carabaos, which serves as the porters 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 photo perfect background, relax your muscles and swimming on the cool waters in the pool; this is the right 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, which is located just few meters from the camp site. Few meters from Buruwisan, you’ll find its extension waterfalls, the 70 feet Lanzones Falls. If the pool in Buruwisan is filled with people, then it’s the perfect place for you.
The campsite in Romelo is a wide, clean area near the relaxing river and the waterfalls. The sounds of the lashing waters give a relaxing feeling while taking a rest inside the tent. During our stay here, there was a store in the area but the supplies are limited. If you’re planning to have a porter or tired to walk on the trail to descend, horses are available, just pay the owner.
How to get here? Here’s what we did | 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.
