This is how I describe the place whenever someone asks how was it. It was absolutely beautiful. I know I say these words a lot because I am very easy to please; but I swear Minalungao has a lot to offer that other eco-friendly tourist spots no longer have. It's quite far from the city town proper so going alone might not be a good idea (unless you have your own mobile service). Good thing is, roads are currently under construction so people will have a more comfy travel experience soon. The park itself, specifically the amenities, are being fixed as well when we went there; hopefully they don't change it much. It's quite stunning the way it is.
When the idea to just be somewhere far, beautiful, and summer-friendly hits, give this a try! Our plan visit #2 is on my birth month. I'm looking forward to seeing it again. Here goes some pictures we got.

|Thanks to Kuya who maneuvered our ride around the place. Just watching people swim and have fun was enough adrenaline for us. We were not able to try the hanging bridge though because it's under construction (next time!).|
Directions? I really don't know. If you have service, go to Gapan City, asked how to go to General Tinio, follow the signs going to Minalungao (there's one every turn). If you'll commute, just ride a bus going to Gapan City/Cabanatuan City (150-170php from Cubao, around 2-3 hours). Drop-off at Gapan City, ride a trike going to General Tinio (150-200 php). Ask how to go to Minalungao. You can also google it! **wink **wink
Have a great summer!
