Hangga Falls / Maapon Falls

May 24, 2015

Hangga Falls / Maapon Falls is a hidden gem of the Quezon province. It is located in the boundary of the towns of Sampaloc and Lucban. One will have to hike for an hour and a half from the Lucban-Sampaloc Road to get to the falls. The trail is still kind of unexplored and we had the falls all to ourselves when we got there. Unlike other places we’ve been to, the area is well-maintained, with clear water and without trash. Also, our tour guide, Kuya Conrad, is a community official or kagawad, so we were confident that we would be safe.

Some Notes and Tips

    • Our tour guide was nice enough to give us mineral water.
  • Wear leggings or pants because one would encounter grass and leaves with razor sharp edges.

  1. looks like the place is still unexplored… we’ve been there (my mountaineer friends from TIP & admu) in 1995. Solo namin ang lugar… maganda, tahimik, masarap magmuni-muni at maupo sa jacuzzi falls!

    1. Hi, Ms. Susan!

      Sorry for the late reply.

      Indeed, the place is still off the grid. Like you, we were the only ones there when we visited. If you can share with us other treks or hikes you’ve done in the past that’s similar to this, we’d appreciate it.
