I was in Liliw, Laguna province over the weekend for the "Tsinelas Festival", and after roaming the streets of Liliw the whole morning, we drove a few minutes away from the town center to a bridge. The bridge is at the boundary of Liliw and Majayjay, small highland towns nestled at the foothills of Mount Banahaw.
From the bridge, we looked down to a river where folks were swimming and preparing their picnic lunch. The aroma of grilled pork made us all hungry. :p
The water was clear, and I found out later, refreshingly cold! It was a very hot day, probably about 35 degrees C---I wished I brought some extra clothes so I could take a dip in the water.
I envy this girl---watched how she bravely managed the rocks and finally took a dive into the pool. She's a lucky girl to have a place like this to enjoy in the summer.
Clumps of bamboo trees provided cooling shades; fronds rustled and pattered in the summer breeze, singing a duet with the gentle rippling sound of the river.
This river is about 100 kilometers south of Manila, approximately 1.5 to 2-hour drive.

There is a bigger river nearer than Liliw, that one after San Pablo on the way to Dolores. It is also coming from Mt Banahaw, as all rivers in these areas come from. Have you been to Majayjay Falls called Taytay Falls. It's one falls i've long wanted to visit and shoot but haven't found a ready companion yet, haha!
What a gorgeous spot in the world.
A little piece of paradise!
Such a gorgeous setting. Thank you for sharing it. :)
What a beautiful place. That's hotter than we'll get all summer at my house!

Great spot to cool off!
Love the view very natural. I remember we went to this public swimming pool in Iligan city and they kept the natural aspect of the swimming pool. Which for me is a huge drawn to people who likes to swim at the same time wonder the beauty around.
