Daranak Falls is a 14-meter high waterfall nestled at the foot of Tanay Mountain in Brgy. Sampaloc in Tanay, Rizal. The falls has a wide cascade, with water flowing into a catch basin where people can swim. The water from the falls pour through the rivers and ponds that surround the government-owned public park and resort.

How to get there:
- From www.pinoymountaineer.com: Following the Manila East Road, a fork ensues: take the left turn – it is a fast lane to Laguna. From Antipolo, Tanay is a one-hour drive. The turning point is 3 kilometers from the start of Brgy. Plaza Aldea (a sign marks the spot). From there is another 0.5 km of driving; parts of the road are not cemented.
- By public transportation (from www.waypoints.ph): You can ride a jeep or FX to Tanay in Araneta center (Cubao) or in front of StarMall (Edsa cor shaw blvd). Get off at Tanay market and take a tricycle (or jeep if you are a large group). You will normally get the tricycle for P150/trip (max 3 passengers). You can bargain for the return trip as there are no tricycle waiting near the falls. You will have to take a hike to the main road to get a ride back to the market.
