Before our trip, I read the Antipolo government website comparing Hinulugang Taktak to Niagara Falls with its swirling waters, so inviting to swimmers. At the Sumulong Highway, we saw a billboard sign of Hinulugang Taktak with the caption "Protected Landscape". With that, we expected to see a beautiful, majestic waterfalls.

On the contrary, the falls was still in dismal state, as asserted by environmentalists who cried for lack of government will power and interest to save it. OMG! Seeing the catch basin with giant detergent foams and foul odor, it can be said that the people of Antipolo themselves don't seem to care less, otherwise, why will they make Hinulugang Taktak such a dirty mess?
It is a pity that such a majestic natural water formation is allowed to reek and deteriorate.

I encourage everyone who has personally witnessed Hinulugang Taktak's deplorable state to help create awareness of the need to save and rehabilitate it.
