Daranak Falls is one of Tanay, Rizal's pride. It is located at Bgy. Tandang Kutyo, at the foot of Tanay Mountain. Depending on the traffic, it takes about an hour and a half drive from Manila. We reached the place in 45 minutes because we went there at 7 in the morning. We were told that the 14-meter high falls is a favorite location shooting for movies and big television networks' telenovelas.
Expect that this place is very crowded during summer. We were advised that January and February are the best months to visit, and make sure it's a weekday.
Even if we went on a Wednesday, there were many guests already because everyone wants to maximize the remaining days of summer. We didn't dip in the water. Instead we watch Lifeguard, Sandy Tuplano, as he showed and taught as rock balancing. He will soon be featured doing the same in Channel 7.
