The Kilangin falls is located at the foot of Mt. Banahaw and borders of the towns of Majayjay and Liliw, it ‘s located in Baranggay Bukal, hence the name Bukal Falls while for the Liliw locals, it’s called Kilangin Falls. The Liliw trail is said to be the challenging than the walk in the park trail of Majayjay.
It is also considered as one of the hidden beautiful gems of Majayjay Laguna, it is sometime called by the locals as (Kilangin Falls) well known to it’s natural beauty.
The Falls may have several names but one thing is 100% sure, you will be amaze by it’s crystal clear and icy cold natural pool that is floored iwth crimson coloured giant rocks with abundance green moss.
Our first visit to Kilangin Falls was made possible by a friend we met during our Mt. Kalisungan climb. This adventure is her birthday climb and we said that “we will take care of your guests” by bringing some guest with us. That was our gift for her, guest of first time accquaintance but hopefully not the last.
From Manila, we took the Rizal, Tanay, Laguna route to Nagcarlan. From Liliwm after crossing the bridge of Nagcarlan, we looked for Baranggay Bukal then ask for some directions to Bukal falls. We noticed that some roads signs but the size were not convincing or visible enough as guide.
Our trek started at then end concrete road of Baranggay Bukal. The trail is narrow path way all the way to registration are. The Mt. Banahaw was the scenery as we paddled our way.
Some Other Concerns:
There is no camp site around the falls or some comfort rooms or private area for your personal needs. It’s best advised to visit the falls on a dayhike then spend the night at the resort nearby. Guide is not necessary as the concrete walk away which will leads you the way to the registration area. From there, the local will directs you to the pathway down to the water falls.
