  • Have A Refreshing Afternoon Treat And Dip In The Blue Green Waters Of Daranak

    Whether mountains, rivers or waterfalls, Rizal is a wonderful option to scratch that maddening itch for adventure.

    My balikbayan cousin wanted to try something different for his trip in the Philippines. Aside from the usual options like shopping at the mall, visiting museums and try out different restaurants, he wanted to go somewhere off the beaten.

    We escaped to a gem found in Rizal province— the Daranak Waterfalls. The fact that it is accessible makes it more awesome.

    Lady luck was smiling down on us upon arriving at the site. There was not a single soul in sight. We were happy ...

    Need to withdraw from the urban clutter that is Metro Manila but do not have the luxury of time or money? Feel the thirst for the rush of adrenaline and view of nature? Experience the climb and thrill of Mt. Pamitinan. Or should we say Mt. Paitiman? The sun surely won't give the skin an excuse for not being tan.

  • Your Guide To Mt Daraitan

    Birthday is said to be a momentous occasion to celebrate the gift of life. While most people commemorate their natal day by throwing a party, going to favorite shops, chilling on the beach, booking a concert ticket and such, I choose to spend time with nature.

    I organized a trip with my hiking buddies to Mount Daraitan and Tinipak River in Tanay Rizal for this occasion. My expectation was a little low, though I anticipated that it's going to be a blast and surely a memorable one.

    We took a jeepney from Shaw Boulevard going to Tanay, Rizal about 8 in the morning, then another jeepney goin ...

  • Tinipak River A Hidden Gem In Tanay Rizal

    Celebrating the gift of life up the mountain was the greatest thing ever. Standing at the summit of Mt Daraitan on my special day was exceptional. I never thought that this day would ever come and I never foresee myself commemorating my birthday with Mother Nature. Yet, here we are.

    My hiking buddies and I triumphantly reached the peak of Mt Daraitan in one push. As promised, we rewarded ourselves by doing a side trip to Tinipak River. Tinipak River is not like any other rivers out there. In fact, it is one of the most visited river by nature lovers and considered as one of the finest and c ...

  • Wind Farm Draws Tourists And Revenue To Rizal

    Wind turbines are drawing in tourists, revenue and jobs to a small farming town in Rizal.

    Every year, on top of the windswept hills of the province, more than 340,000 tourists mill the view deck of Pililla town's 4,500-hectare wind farm to marvel and take pictures of its 125-meter-tall white wind turbines.

    Construction of the wind farm, which consists of 27 turbines, finished in June 2015.

    The farm was inaugurated and opened to the public in June 2016 to raise awareness about cleaner and alternative sources of energy.

    The turbines, under the ownership of renewable energies-focused ...
