Hop on an ATV for an off-road adventure navigating from steep hills and rough terrain all the way through the jungle of Sierra Madre or Marikina River. There are five tours to choose from that vary in difficulty and trip length with fees ranging from P1,500 to Php 6,500 per person.

 

3. Nagpatong Rock Formation

Another activity for the thrill-seekers is hiking to Nagpatong Rock Formation, which are massive blocks of limestone rocks atop each other nestled at the foot of Mount Masungki.

While the tour begins with a mild trek, it’s the vertical climb to the summit of the formation that gets tricky and challenging—definitely not for the faint-hearted!

Registration fee is Php100 per person, and the guide fee is Php 500 for a group of five people.

 

2. Malangaan Cave

For a light and leisurely trek, consider Malangaan Cave in San Rafael, Bulacan. It is only a 2-hour drive from the city to see the aisle of curved rock formations that lead up to a cave, where guerilla groups once seeked shelter during World War 2.

An uneasy feeling. I think most of you will agree that there are events in our life that make us go queasy. Certain places can make us anxious. There are even people who can make us nervous right from the start. Do you also agree that there are pictures that can evoke uneasy feelings? A few people would say this picture of a cave in Bulacan is one of them. Do you agree? . 📍Malangaan Cave, San Rafael, Bulacan?

No fees to be paid, except for tips for the tour guide.

 

1. Lobo Cave

How about a short trip to the Caving Capital of the Philippines? Lobo Cave in Samar has plenty of treasures hidden beneath. Spelunking through the dark includes sightings of enormous, glistening stalagmite and stalactite formations, underground rivers and waterfalls, and some interesting cave organisms.

It's Day 1 of my four-day #caving marathon with @samar.caving and @adrenaline_romance here in Western Samar — the "Caving Capital of the #Philippines" — and we're already blown away! Today, we explored #LoboCave in Brgy. Tagbaya-on, Jiabong for five adventure-filled hours of bouldering, rappelling and swimming. Its multi-storey tunnels are filled with sparkling chambers, underground rivers, waterfalls and strange creatures like blind crabs and spider-worms! 😱 For more info on Samar caving, visit http://trexplore.weebly.com #sparksamar #itsmorefuninthephilippines #visitphilippinesagain2016 #samar #westernsamar #goasean #spelunking #speleology #travel #adventure #lonelyplanet #natgeotravel
