Kaybiang Tunnel is 300-meter tunnel part of the new 6-kilometer Tourism Road in Cavite that cuts travel time from Manila to Nasugbu and Calatagan, Batangas from the usual 4 hours via Tagaytay to just a little over 1 hour.
The tourism road project was conceptualized in 1994 during the Fidel Ramos administration but had so much delays due to issues like rights of way. Almost 10 years ...
later, it was completed on July 2013. The artery consists of a new four-kilometer paved road, a 1.4-km concrete road, four new bridges, and the 300-meter Kaybiang Tunnel.
The road offers a very scenic view right after you pass through the tunnel.

Kaybiang Tunnel Road Trip in Maragondon, Cavite.
The road to Kaybiang Tunnel in Nasugbu is a relatively new route, but one destined to become a classic as cyclists and multisport athletes continue to look for longer and more challenging rides.
Going to the seaside town of Nasugbu, Batangas, or the further seaside spots and resorts like Punta Fuego or Pico de Loro, used to be a chore.
