Daranak falls is located in Brgy. Sampaloc, Tanay, Rizal, a few minutes from Tanay market.

It is a government-owned park and part of the laguna watershed. If you are going by private vehicle, just follow the road going to Laguna from Antipolo. At the Daranak-Tanay junction (see waypoint), turn left and head straight uphill. You will see a sign "To Daranak Falls" at the left side of the road. You have to turn left here. It's hard to miss since there are several fruit stands on both sides of the road which sell fruits in season. Once you have turned left, just go straight, passing by several farms (poultry and hog) which you will notice by the smell =). Check you brakes as you will pass by rocky steep roads. You will arrive at the parking area of Daranak at the end of this road. You have to pay for parking (i forgot the price), entrance fee (about P20/person) and cottages (about P350 for a small one). Overnight stay is not accommodated.

How to get there

From EDSA,starmall: There are vans (GT-express) that are lined up near starmall. The fare is around 70 pesos..We departed at around 9am and we reached Antipolo City Hall 11am,..you'll pass Morong, their
memorial park and lastly the station near Tanay Market. There a SaveMore store near the bus/van station . We reached Tanay around 11:30 am, so that is 2.5 hrs.

After that, you need to ride (open) trycycle to get you to Daranak. Since I travelled alone, they are offering P250 for the ride..which is a big no-no for me. I've just make tawad up to P100...Luckily, there's one manong offered a ride plus kwento about the 2 falls! How sweet!

We reached Daranak in 15 minutes..so if you're planning walk/hike..you'd better have your nose covered...since the road is too dusty.

Daranak Falls is open from 8am-5pm..7 days a week..no overnights
Picnic Table/Shed -100

while Batlag falls is offering overnights

for overnight

Picnic Shed-350

Daranak vs Batlag

What so funny at this place is that Daranak cottages & comfort rooms are better than that at Batlag but Batlag is much more cozier than the first one.
There are many vendors inside the falls, but watch out for their price

Daranak falls are kinda bigger but the water at Batlag are cleaner..(since it is located higher) The water at the comfort rooms are non-stop (since it comes from the falls) so you'd changing your clothes in a 'dirty' bihisan
