Minalungao Caves (General Tinio, Nueva Ecija)

The entrance to the cave

Minalungao National Park in the town of General Tinio boasts some of the best natural wonders in the whole province of Nueva Ecija. Just around 4 hours away from Manila and just an hour away from Gapan City, the park is a favorite destination for local tourists. Within the park is the pristine emerald-green waters of the PeƱaranda River, framed by tall sheer white limestone cliffs on both side creating a picturesque river bend, the (more or less) 1,000 steps leading to the cross at the summit of Minalungao Hill and of course the series of caves behind the sheer rock face of the cliffs.
