Special Features
Hinulugang Taktak National park is located at Taktak Road, Brgy. Dela Paz. The falls is a part of Antipolo's natural and cultural heritage. Proclaimed a National Park on June 15, 1952. Its legendary origin dates back to the 15th century when legend has it that the waterfalls was where the townsfolk threw the large bell that caused undue disturbance whenever it was rung at Angelus. Its sound was so loud that the people could not endure it. They demanded that the local priest get rid of the bell. Thus "Hinulugang Taktak", meaning the place where the bell was dropped. The place has since become a favorite spots for visitors and clients. The park is an alluring view of natural formation. After soul cleansing at the renowned Antipolo's Lady of Peace Shrine, the park offers physical and spiritual cleansing for pilgrims. The energetic sparks of water bubbling and doubling over as it cascades down the cliff guarantees to revive flagging spirits. The waterfalls of Hinulugang Taktak are famed for this energetic lift. Tourists can plan on a full day picnic with the convenience and comforts of cottages, common barbeque pits, clean public toilets and super-sized pools.
