Hinulugang Taktak

Hinulugang Taktak is a waterfall in the Philippines found in the province of Rizal on Luzon island. The waterfall area has been designated as a National Park by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources[1] and is one of the two most popular tourist spots in Antipolo, Rizal's capital, the other being the Antipolo Cathedral. In 1990, the waterfall has also been proclaimed as a National Historical Shrine under Republic Act No. 6964.[2]

The waters are polluted and not suitable for swimming[3] But many LGU's and NGU's are acting to save its natural beauty by efforts to preserve its upper part for park use, and not for abusive, trash use.
