Malvar, Batangas

In between Lipa City and Tanauan City, lies one of the rising towns in Batangas - the town of Malvar.

Here are the tourist spots in Malvar, Batangas:

Alulod, Bulihan, Malvar, Batangas

From the town of Malvar, you can hire a tricycle for P250-300 and go to Bulihan, Malvar, Batangas. Once you reach the CDO factory, you are just 30 seconds away from the alley leading to the jump-off point. 

Once you reach the Bulihan Water Point Corporation, then you have to travel by foot. The descending trek is good for 12-15 minutes depending on you pace.  

There are available cottages once you reach the spot. You do not need a guide to find your way. Entrance fee is only P30.00.

There are two-man made pools which you can enjoy. And there is also a falls. The view is just overwhelming!

Calijon Falls, San Gregorio, Malvar, Batangas

From Alulod, another tourist spot in Malvar is the Calijon Falls. It will take you only 15-20 minute drive from Alulod to reach the jump-off point.

The jump-off point is in Bessie's Store. And the trek is again descending for 15-20 minutes. You have to be very careful of your steps. The trail was destroyed when village people cut the coconut trees due to a pest that had been killing the coconut trees.

The Calijon Falls is one of the premiere tourist spots in Malvar, Batangas. You do need a guide to find your way but it is a lot safer and better to have one.

  2. Well-said bro! Last year 2013, me and the rest of my family traveled from Manila to Batangas not only to visit my sister but also to visit the Alulod River which just few minutes away from her home. I can say that it's good place for family bonding and relaxing for its covered by green and mostly tall trees. It's also good way of excercising and adventure because other than swimming, you need to do mountain climbing or rappell-like going up and down to the man-made pool. Its challenging and good way of controlling your moves and energy. If you feel tired, you need to stop for a while in order to regain the strenght of your knees because its quite dangerous to walk with low strenght and be out of balance since no barrier will stop you from falling at the edge of the mountain.....by next year, I will try to visit the MetroTurf Racetrack near my newly purchased property in San Pioquinto...hope that it will be also real interesting place to visit :-)
