WOW Minalungao!

As an adventure seeker and an aspirant traveler blogger tour in Minalungao National Park should never be missed. Minalungao National Park is one of the remaining natural environment in the Philippines, a protected area of the Philippines located in the municipality of General Tinio, Nueva Ecija in Central Luzon.

The park covers an area of 2,018 hectares centered along Peñaranda River bordered on both sides by up to 16 meter high limestone walls in the foothills of Sierra Madre mountain range. The local government considers it as one of the few remaining natural environments in Central Luzon.

You can either ride a raft or hike to see the limestone walls. If you’re on a budget, just walk, since it will just take you less than three minutes to get there.

There are so many activities available within the park, that you can choose from. Ziplines for adventurers, bamboo rafting ride, trekking to limestone to get to the cave, trek to grotto and of course having a picnic with your families and friends.

Since I haven’t tried Bamboo Rafting, this is the best time for me as a first-timer! Best enjoyed with friends while having your lunch or snacks in the raft.
