The 14-meter high Daranak waterfall in Tanay, Rizal, has been a buzz over everyone’s quick and easy get-away from the bustling metro. Enjoy your short but sweet weekend to this piece of paradise after a 2-hour road trip with friends and family. If you fancy having the place to yourself, we suggest you go on a weekday, if not, sharing the spot with a few strangers would still be a good way to meet someone new, and who knows, this group of people could be your next travel barkada.
