The Masungi Georeserve, a premier eco-tourism destination in Rizal province, formally reopened on Wednesday after being closed for eight months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Ang maganda dito sa Masungi it’s quite close to Metro Manila and alam naman natin ‘yong mga turista galing National Capital Region so this is close enough (What’s good here in Masungi is that it’s quite close to Metro Manila and we know that most of the tourists are from the NCR so this is close enough),” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said during an interview with reporters in Baras town.
However, to observe minimum health protocols, Visitors to destination are required to book their reservations at Masungi’s website, with the number per group limited to five to eight persons
Entrance fee ranges from P1,500 to P1,800, with no testing required except if a visitor shows symptoms at the site.
The destination is known for its sprawling limestone landscape and trails perched on towering trees.
For eight months since the pandemic lockdowns, Masungi Georeserve did not layoff any of its local employees, most of whom are from the Dumagat tribe. SOVEREIGNPH
