Majayjay Falls

Yesterday, we decided to visit Taytay Falls also known as Majayjay Falls in Majayjay, Laguna. I was fascinated with name of place called Majayjay. According to some folklore “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 sighs from appreciating the gift of nature. We left at 4:00am in our place then we reached Brgy. Taytay past 7am already. The trip was long because we had to cut trips. But the trip was really awesome. The entrance to Taytay falls is 20 pesos per head for day tour. Before we proceed to do the trek. 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 visitors were all Filipinos. It’s good to know that more locals are helping the tourism in propagating the local tourism. The visitors in this water falls are dominated by the youth. They put up tent and camp there. The water is too cold. We couldn’t stay in the water for long. The place is really awesome. The vegetation is still rich. It’s a safe place there are civilian guards everywhere, who remind everyone not too litter and be careful with exploring the place. The water falls height is more or less 20ft., clear and cold. We stayed there for just a couple of hour, it was short but we explored the place. The trip was awesome and worth of our time.
