Information about Biak-na-Bato National Park
Biak-na-Bato National Park
Biak-na-Bato National Park, located in San Miguel, is perhaps the most well-known Bulacan park. The 2,117-hectare park is famous for its historical significance as a mountain refuge for Filipino rebels fighting the Spanish army. General Emilio Aguinaldo created the Republic of Biak-na-Bato here as well.
Today, the park is a haven for individuals who wish to reconnect with nature by going on hiking trips and exploring rock formations, caverns, and rivers. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes because some sites take a bit of a hike to access.
Mt. Gola and Mt. Manalmon are popular hiking destinations in the park. If you want a challenge and can only select one of these mountains to climb, Mt. Gola is the one for you.
The hike to the peak can take an hour, and you'll have to crawl through some steep pathways or use a rope to pull yourself up. The path also crosses a small brook, so be prepared to get your shoes wet. The vista of the mountains and the Madlum River will greet you after you reach the peak.
