At first glance, Nueva Ecija does not look like it has anything to offer when it comes to tourist destinations. The province is landlocked, which means it doesn't have any beaches. But if you take the chance to embark on the two to three-hour trip from Metro Manila, you'll discover an exquisite wonder of nature not known by many—the Minalungao National Park.

Hidden in the municipality of General Tinio, Minalungao National Park is one among the many protected areas in the Philippines. With tall limestone formations that border around the pristine Peñaranda River and a bustling ecosystem, the attraction is a real treat for nature lovers.

First things first
Minalungao National Park is just three hours away from Metro Manila. To get there, ride a bus bound to Cabanatuan City and get off at Gapan City. Some of the bus lines you can take are Five Star, ES Transport, Baliwag Transit, and Golden Bee.

From there, you can hire a tricycle to take you to Minalungao National Park. The ride takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Though rare, there are also jeepneys in Gapan City that are bound for General Tinio. Once you arrive in General Tinio, you can hire a tricycle to get to Minalungao.
