One could never go wrong especially in climbing Mt. Daraitan where vistas of the nearby town could be seen in bird's eyeview. The hike to the summit will take an hour to two, depending on your physical might, and another half an hour going down to the picturesque Tinipak River— where humongous boulders of rocks create foams in its white waters. 


  • Hop on a van or jeepney along Shaw Boulevard headed to Tanay. 
  • Ask to be dropped of at Jollibee tanay where one can hail a tricycle bound for Barangay Daraitan where the registration site is located


  • Daranak falls is nearby, a quick stop wouldn't hurt and would mean hitting 3 birds in one stone (Mt. Daraitan, Tinipak Falls, Daranak Falls)
  • Go spelunking to the nearby cave in Tinipak River. Ask your trusty guide about the path leading to cave.
