Daranak Falls and Batlag Falls of Tanay, Rizal
Looking for a place to spend your weekend? If you want a taste of nature but hate long travel time then I believe this one suits you. Why don't you try to visit Daranak Falls and Batlag Falls. Two huge and enticing falls in one place. Sounds amazing right?
Daranak and Batlag falls are both located in Tanay, Rizal and it is a park facilitated by the local authorities/government. It is just a few minutes away from the city proper so expect many people coming in this place to experience and see its beauty.

As you reach Tanay market, hire a tricycle that will take you to Daranak/Batlag Falls. 150 pesos is the regular fare for this trip (maximum of 4 pax). You can bargain with the driver to save up. Take note: There are no tricycle waiting near the falls going back to Tanay Market so I suggest to bargain the return trip also. Else, you will be trekking back to the main road and up the market with your foot.
Batlag falls is at the top of Daranak falls. You don't need any ride to reach Batlag falls simply because it is just a few steps away. So enjoy the view as you go there.

The deeper it is the less people you interact on that area. However Photo op wise, my vote goes to Batlag falls since it is less crowded there. You can take the whole frame alone without anyone bombing your shot.
