EXCLUSIVE Masungi Georeserve Tour from Manila, Philippines 2019
Best Way to Get There, Things You Can See, and More!

Introduction

One of the great things about the Philippines is its beautiful islands. If you are in Manila and do not have a chance to visit the islands, then the next best thing you can do is to go outside the city. Luckily, the Masungi Georeserve is a great one-day getaway.

The Masungi Georeserve

The Masungi Georeserve is located in Baras, Rizal and is one of the privately-led conservation areas in the Philippines. Here, you can catch breath-taking views of unique rock formations of limestone and karst, while traversing stone trails, rope courses, and hanging bridges. You will definitely get an adrenaline rush from the adventure!

💭 Final Thoughts

Morry Travels | Masungi Georeserve Exclusive Private Tour | Travel Guide

There are more choices to choose from when booking through the Masungi Website. To put the costs into perspective, a Grab/Taxi Ride costs over $15 USD for 1-2 miles. The Georeserve is two hours away from Makati, Metro Manila. The cost for your own transportation already exceeds the cost of going with a tour group.

➡️ To get the BEST VALUE for your time and money, I recommend going with Klook's Masungi Georeserve Tour.
