Hidden Falls in Hidden Valley Springs, Calauan, Laguna



from www.traveltophillippines
From Majayjay, Laguna, Alvin Mendoza and I cruised our way back to Batangas. 
We had our motorcycle tour and went to Taytay Falls in Majayjay and Bunga Twin Falls in Nagcarlan, Laguna. 
Our target that day was touring the different falls in Laguna. 
Bukal Falls in Majayjay was stricken out from the list since the trek was good for 2 hours. The last stop of the motorcycle tour was the Hidden Falls in Hidden Valley Springs in Calauan, Laguna. It was past 1 pm when we reached Alaminos, Laguna. 
And the rain was about to pour. 

Apasan tricycle terminal

How to get there

From Manila (Pasay) or Cubao, ride a bus going to Lucena. 


From Buendia, you can ride either Jacliner Bus, Lucena Lines, Jam or DLTB. Travel time from Buendia to Alaminos less the traffic is 1 hour. Fare is P90.00. Alight at 7-Eleven (town proper) in Alaminos or in Alaminos market. Then, go to the market and look for the terminal which says "Apasan." The fare in the tricycle ride is P80, for non-guest, or P200 for guests (2-3 pax only). The distance from the terminal to Hidden Valley is 5 kilometers.

I asked the staff of Hidden Valley whether it is possible to go directly to Calauan instead of using the Alaminos route and he told me that it was not possible since the connecting bridge is broken. 

Well, If you have your car, you can drive directly to Alaminos, Laguna.


It was different on our part since we came all the way from Majayjay, Laguna. From the tricycle terminal, we passed by Alaminos Church. Initially, I thought that Hidden Valley Springs was in Alaminos, Laguna.

 Until we passed by the signage which says - Calauan, Laguna.


The motorcycle ride was  a bit tough since the road leading to Hidden Valley was rough. But it was all part of the adventure and I was so excited since it was my first time to see Hidden Valley Spring.   

Hanggang gate lang ako =)
And after nearly 10 minutes of joyride in my bike, we reached the entrance of Hidden Valley Springs. I made the necessary inquiry about the spot and we were told that the day tour costs P2,200. Unfortunately for us, it was past 1 pm and it we already missed half of the day. And so we decided not to have the tour. 

But nonetheless, I will still give to you details of the brochure handed to us by the staff of Hidden Valley Springs. =)
