We wanted to make sure our long weekend would be much enjoyable as possible. I am not so good when it comes to directions so as expected we were lost even though we have maps. It was a great adventure nevertheless.
According to some “MA” was from the word MARAMI, which means plenty in English. And the word “Jay”(pronounced as hay) was from “hay”, which means sigh in English. So the word is full of sigh from appreciating the gift of nature.
Leaving at 7 AM, I thought was too early for us to catch a bus ride to our featured destination. I have asked a couple of friends who were there before and asked the fastest way to get to Majayjay and we’ve been told to take a bus route going to Famy, Laguna. Then from there a tricycle ride to Siniloan, a public utility jeepney ride to Sta Cruz and finally, a jeepney ride to Majayjay.
Lucky for us a public utility jeepney approached us and offered a special trip to Majayjay at PHP 100 per head which to us is not bad, after all it was a long and another zigzag road experience as well.
I would strongly suggest if you’ll be coming from Manila
take a bus to lucena, from Lucena take a jeepney ride to Lucban and a tricycle to Majayjay.
Like i said we wanted to be there as early as possible so we could maximize our time with taking pictures and stuff. Since most of them came from work we had to eat for breakfast before heading to a bus station in Manila. We took a bus going to Famy, Laguna route.
I find it a little surprising when we learned that most of the buses going to Famy, Laguna pass by Ortigas extension, we’re such a jerk.
Imagine bumiyahe pa kami ng Manila, dadaan din pala ng Ortigas.
The trip was long because we had to cut trips. But the trip was really awesome after all.
Finally, we arrived at last.
The entrance is only for PHP 20. If you bring your own tent, better otherwise you can always rent. We had to rent tent which is good for 8 people.
There’s also an apartment type of accommodation and you can choose cottages if that’s what you prefer.
It’s PHP 350 pesos per room as of this writing and unlimited occupants but we prefer camping near the Majayjay waterfalls. I guess to be able to really appreciate the beauty of nature.
We arrived with plenty of groceries, an improvised stove. Most of the people we met are young adults having their own tents and decided also to camp near the waterfalls, its truly a haven for nature lovers.
Trekking to the water falls was easy. The path way is already cemented so it so easy to trek. Actually this is the easiest trek that we had.
The water is very cold, it’s really freezing and the vegetation is so rich too. It’s a safe place, civilian guards and staff are all over the place checking you guys out. We stayed there overnight and hopefully will comeback soon .
