❶ Where can we find Hulugan? Around three hours away from Metro Manila, Hulugan is located at Brgy. San Salvador in Luisiana, Laguna.
❷ How much time should I allot for the trip? To be safe, free your entire day for a comfortable adventure. We don't recommend that you book this trip if you are coming straight from a flight or will be flying out on the same day as the traffic in the metro can be heavy.
❸ How challenging is the hike? You will find yourself in a tropical jungle so prepare for humidity and insects. A sizable portion of the trail is muddy, you'll be crossing some streams and some rocky parts of the trail are slick especially those that are near the water falls. We recommend that you wear a pair of footwear that has a good ankle support and excellent traction (no flip-flops).
❹ Who should avoid this trip? For safety purposes, we won't accept pregnant women, kids under 8 years old and those who have knee and/or ankle issues. Everyone else is welcome. If you are not sure if this activity is for you, give us a call and we'll help you figure it out.
❺ When is it best to visit? It is accessible all year-round but it is at its most beautiful from July to January (wet months). Obviously, don't go there when there is a typhoon as the streams easily turn into raging rivers.
