Revisiting Twin Falls of Kalayaan

It was actually my second time to visit Kalayaan Twin Falls which is nice getaway hidden in the heart of Sierra Madre range in Laguna. Due to the recent aftermath of Typhoon Lawin, the water is murky so I've decided not to take a swim. I learned about the said falls from a fellow traveler whom I met in Bataan, so I've decided to revisit the place and this time I tried "waterfalls photography" using my bridge camera which I rarely use.

There are 5 falls located in the "Twin Falls of Kalayaan" but the Twin falls are the two distinct falls. In order to reach the twin falls one would need to do a short trek with a minimal ascent that passes through a forested area. After a 10 minutes trek, one will reach the first of the two waterfalls - it is a medium-sized falls that fed into a small but deep catch basin with smaller cascades that meandered through a large rocks scattered all over the stream bed. A further 10 minutes trek of 100 feet ascent throught a plight of stairs and cemented path will lead you to the second falls which is much beautiful than the first. Huge boulders stranded along the stream gave an indication of past floods that have sculptured the landscape of the place.

The resort is managed by the local barangay office of San, Juan, Kalayaan and now the fee is 40 pesos which collected as an environmental fee. Nothing much has changed except that the cottages looks more dilapidated compared to my first visit.
