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. In this sanctuary, guests will be able to commune with nature, and reenergise themselves while doing so. Wander through our pathways for an encounter with wildlife and plant species. Enjoy light snacks before exiting the trail. Learn more about the history of the place introducing you to a community rich with heritage and life.
The Discovery Trail of Masungi Georeserve allows guests to go through the conservation area, and come up close with the karst terrain. The trek lasts for 3-4 hours in total, but may be shortened or lengthened depending on the guest’s preference and capacity. A park ranger will be guiding guests through the trek providing a deeper understanding of the area.
The Legacy Trail is an immersion in the greater Masungi Geopark Project where restoration efforts are currently ongoing. Guests will be able to directly participate in bringing life back in the abused land and care for the area.
The Garden Picnic allows guests to sit in nature, relax in a rustic garden, and enjoy the lower park spaces of Masungi Georeserve. The experience consists of a 20-minute stroll featuring trees in the area, a designated picnic space for your party to lounge in for the rest of your stay, and tea tasting featuring select native plants. The picnic’s guided activities last for 40 minutes. The experience is designed to give guests the opportunity to enjoy the surroundings at their own pace.
