One of the main tourist attractions in Seoul is Gyeongbokgung, the former royal palace of the Kingdom of Joseon.

Masungi Georeserve Trail


Masungi Ditse Baras

Masungi Georeserve is located in Tanay, Rizal. In the 80's, this part of Rizal was at the brink of deforestation because of illegal logging. Through the efforts of DENR, local government and private corporation, its flora and fauna have been rehabilitated and now continuously flourish.


Masungi Trail

The Masungi Georeserve is a conservation area and a rustic rock garden tucked in the rainforests of Rizal. Masungi’s name is derived from the word “masungki” which translates to “spiked” - an apt description for the sprawling limestone landscape found within


Masungi Limestone

The Masungi Limestones were formed mostly from the Paleocene epoch 60 million years ago. These formations rose from the ocean through the meeting of tectonic plates. By definition, limestone is a kind of sedimentary rock formed with different kinds of minerals, including calcite, corals and other organisms' exoskeletons.

In December 2015, we opened the georeserve to a limited number of guests to support the conservation of the landscape through geotourism.

Masungi Nanay Girl Travel

Masungi is so green, your eyes sigh in contentment. The place is full of old, tall trees, sinkholes, and dramatic karst limestone cliffs and caves.


Masungi Sapot and Duyan

Masungi bridges and platforms are designed to have the least impact on the natural environment. One of them is Duyan, a 50-meter rope walkway atop the forest canopy, lovingly handwoven by our artisan-rangers. It's the perfect place to meditate and take deep breaths even for just a few moments along the Discovery Trail.
