If you’re planning a trip going to Rizal this is one of the best placed in Rizal that you should not miss.
This 21-meter waterfalls in Antipolo Rizal Philippines used to be a popular weekend destination. But because of poor waste management and lack of proper sewage, Hinulugang Taktak was closed for rehabilitation in the early 2010s and was reopened to the public in 2015. Now, the renovated park features new sports facilities for the adventurous traveler who will enjoy the spider web platform, hanging bridges, and wall-climbing facility. While for those seeking a chill getaway, there are cottages that you can rent for P500 a day and a swimming pool where you can take a dip for P50. Hinulugang Taktak is definitely one of the best places to see in Antipolo and a must-see when you’re done exploring San Mateo Rizal tourist spots.
Designated as a national park in 1990, the Hinulugang Taktak Protected Landscape covers three hectares of verdant forest. It was named after the Hinulugang Taktak waterfalls, which is obviously the highlight of the park.
Easily accessible from the town center, it is an iconic landmark in Antipolo and said to be one of the most visited national parks in the country. The trails leading to the falls have been developed to make it easier for tourists, especially seniors and PWDs, to access.
The area surrounding the falls has become a picnic site, adorned with tables and gazebos. There is also a designated pool area for those who want to swim. If you want to trek or do some challenging activities, you can check out the new facilities like wall climbing, rappelling, and other rope courses.
Both the local government and DENR are continuously doing their job to protect and maintain the park. Let us help by following the rules and regulations.
