Shooting the Rapids in Pagsanjan Falls
I simply cannot have enough of the rapids of Pagsanjan Falls!
I had to do it again!
With a very dear friend, I went back to Pagsanjan, Laguna to relive my shooting the rapids experience in Pagsanjan. Last time I was here, I was with my friend Mek and we went to the various tourist spots in Laguna.
Everything went as planned and we were enjoying our boat ride to the falls.
How to get there
From Buendia, Manila or Cubao, board a bus (DLTB or Greenstar) going to Sta. Cruz, Laguna. Travel time from Manila to Sta. Cruz, Laguna is 2-3 hours depending on the traffic in Los Banos, Laguna. Fare is P140 from Buendia. From Calamba, fare is P61 only (in some buses P80) and travel time is only 1 hour and 20 minutes.
Reaching the capital of Laguna (Sta. Cruz), board a jeep going to Pagsanjan and alight at any of the resorts for your shooting the rapids adventure.
Good thing the weather was sunny that day. Along the way, the view to the falls was really captivating and the ride was simply amazing.
The adventure began once we hit the rapids. Our boat was against the rapids.
There were a lot of tourists enjoying the rapids that day. We did not mind getting wet.
We were all smiles. And enjoying the boat ride.
During the boat ride, you have to take your souvenir pictures.
Finally, after nearly one hour, we reached Pagsanjan Falls!
The adventure will not be complete unless you go to the inner part of the falls and we did!
The current was so strong once you are inside the inner part of the falls.
After staying for an hour at the falls, we decided to go back. We took our lunch and headed back to Manila.
