Mt. Makiling Forest Reserve: A Nature Haven 1.5 Hours Away From Manila

Looking for a fun nature trip that’s just a few hours away from Metro Manila?

Try visiting the Mt. Makiling Forest Reserve in Laguna.

Just an hour and a half away via the South Luzon Expressway, the beautiful landscape is home to various flora and fauna, plus a hike trail to the summit.


The ASEAN Heritage Park also houses the mudsprings, a campsite, and a nursery.
