If you're into trekking, let me promote our very own Biak na Bato National Park in my hometown, San Miguel, Bulacan which is I think a 3-hr drive from Manila.

If you love Philippine History, and I think most of us encountered what was the role of Biak na Bato, where the First Philippine Republic was proclaimed by Emilio Aguinaldo.

It has more than a hundred caves but unfortunately mostly are unexplored for safety reasons but still it offers something for trekkers and nature lovers. It is surrounded by the Balaong River and springs + there is a "Paniki Cave" if you want to see Paniki.

The entrance fee is only 30/person but it is advised to get your own guide which is roughly 200-300/group, and being a local we decided not to get our guide + while exploring, there were two kids following us who are knowledgeable about the Biak na Bato and even guiding us—for free? Lol, no. We handed them something :) + they even willingly took our group picture.

And another thing, nearby is the Banal na Bundok where you can also see the beauty of Sierra Madre Mountains + The Station of the Cross.

There, if you want to have some trek anytime soon... try to visit Biak na Bato National Park. :) #12Days

We spend one sunday trekking some 7km of Biak na Bato National Park.
The minimum 7km trail is good for beginners with occasional (who am i kidding?) stops of ooohs aaahs and picture taking. Started the trek around 12pm and back at the entrance around 2pm. Good exercise!

Entrance fee - Php30

Guide Fee - Php300 for a group
of 10 for that 7km only (from the entrance - hanging bridge - Bahay Paniki Cave - Aguinaldo Cave - starting/end point)
If you want to explore more caves it's addtl 150/cave.

Restroom - located only at the entrance. With pay depends on use. Pee 5, Poo- 10, change of clothes - 15 and shower 20.

Parking - P40 for cars, P50 vans/suv

Food stalls - not much of an option here. I saw 2-3 sari sari store around the entrance. Better bring your own baon.

Trail - since it rained couple of days before the trails are damp and slightly muddy. Madulas! Proper shoes for trekking is recommended.
The guide will let you know which part of the trek you may take a dip/swim on the river.

Travel - 2 to 2.5hrs from Mindanao Ave, Quezon City.

We plan to be really early next time so we can explore more caves 128515.
