Rizal Province is a calming yet adventurous runaway place near Metro Manila. It is known to have beautiful mountain ranges, graceful falls and has great festivals. But did you know that there is a land in Rizal that is not yet seen by many?
Jala Jala, pronounced as “hala hala”, is the last side of Rizal that is composed of farmlands and fishing areas. This small town lives by the agriculture of their land. They are famous for their good quality rice, flavorful yogurts and milk, fresh meat and fishes. You’ll enjoy freshly picked foods without any preservatives while you’re in this place.
Other than their products and services, the view is amazingly beautiful. Jala Jala faces the side of Laguna lake wherein you can see the reflection of Mt. Maria Makiling to the water as you face the lake. You can also see the Sierra Madre, the longest mountain range in our country, just beside you. When the sunset hits by 5pm, that’s where you’ll see the colorful skies play along with different colors.
