The falls of Buntot Palos is considered a hidden gem by the people of Pangil, Laguna as it will take you an average of two hours before reaching the end point.
Buntot Palos (Eel’s Tail) is popular among rappellers because of the rock walls on both sides of the falls. The water cascading from its height of 80 meters (according www.pinoymountaineer.com) falls majestically on the basin where trippers swim and have the best time refreshing themselves after the trek.
The trail can be really muddy when after some rain showers. Rappellers also have to be reminded of that the rocks in Buntot Palos can be very slippery.
You can bring your tent for a day hike or overnight stay. According to www.lakwatseradeprimera.com, there’s an entrance fee (for the maintenance of the campsite) of 25 for day hikers and 30 pesos for those who will stay overnight.
