Kilangin Falls/Bukal Falls (Liliw, Laguna)

At the lowest tier of Kilangin Falls

Turquoise blue, ice cold water from the springs at the foot of Mt. Banahaw, thick and verdant forest cover and the relative ease of reaching the falls are what draws people from all over to this little piece of paradise tucked away in a remote corner of Liliw, Laguna. Known by two names depending on who you ask, the people of Liliw refers to this place as Kilangin Falls, said to be derived from the word dalangin as the falls were said to be a former pilgrimage site where devotees of the virgin Mary would offer their prayers. On the other side of the fence, people from the neighboring town of Majayjay refers to it as Bukal Falls, named after barangay Bukal in the municipality. As such, the falls can be reached either via Brgy. Novaliches in Liliw or Brgy. Bukal in Majayjay.
