DETOUR TO BURUWISAN FALLS

It was supposed to be a Mt. Pulag climb last weekend but due to a not so good weather forecast and advise from my reliable contact there not to push through, I am glad that we didn’t. The original plan was replaced by this trip because I was really hesitant to pursue the climb. I’ve been to Pulag 6 times (5 via Akiki Trail) and had my most terrifying experience when a sudden change of weather happened during our climb in December 2006.  I don’t want to take the gamble again especially when I have first timers with me.

Buruwisan Falls is located in Mt. Romelo, often mistaken as Mt. Famy.  It is one of the five waterfalls found in Sierra Madre Range.  Buruwisan is the most famous of all because of it accessibility.

The height of Buruwisan Falls is estimated at 180 ft. It is very ideal for rappelling and landscape photography. It also has cold and clear water which is good for bathing.

The trek going to waterfalls is  an easy 2 hours hike but when it rains and trail becomes muddy (read as: really really muddy).  I just experienced my muddiest trek last weekend.

Although the trek can be done by day trip, an overnight stay is more recommended to maximize the visit and have an ample time to explore the area. If you’re lazy to bring a camping tent, nipa huts are available for rent.

    How much is the rent for the nipa huts and are there any comfort rooms available for use if you’ll be staying overnight here?
