Hidden Valley Spring


If the Pagsanjan ‘Shooting the rapids’ not for you, go to Alaminos and relax underneath the lush greenery of the Hidden Valley Springs.


 At the foot of Mount Makiling is literally a Hidden Valley, in both context and ambiance. It's only been a little over 100 years since it was actually discovered, so the name is inspired by being a hidden place! Founded in 1913, it was originally used only by Filipino aristocrats. In 1972, it was finally opened to the public.

The entire section is connected with Mt. Makiling, considered as a national park, where free-flowing waterfalls flow from the top to the natural pools; Three Hot Spring Pools, The Love Pool, and The Soda Pool (there’s a rumor that if you add cup of sugar it would taste like soda, hence the name of the pool).
