Celestravels: Mt. Daraitan and Tinipak River

8:13 PM

I cannot remember when was the last time I posted here in my blog because of the endless school work that we had and still have but I am so excited for this latest blog post because I'm going to tell you about my pre-holy week adventure with my bff's. This segment is about our CRC adventures!

CRCAdventures went to Tanay, Rizal and explored the beauty of Mount Daraitan and Tinipak River. Our trip started at 5 am going to Tanay Rizal for around two hours and another two hours going to Daraitan.

How to get there:

1. Ride a jeepney going to Tanay beside Starmall Shaw boulevard. The jeepney fare cost P58.00 one way. Ask the driver to drop you at the Tanay Public Market.

2.  From Tanay Public Market ride a tricycle going to the barangay hall of Daraitan. The tricycle ride cost P500.00 minimum of 5 people. ( This includes the fee at the bridge)

Upon arriving at the barangay hall of Daraitan, the tourist guides accomodated us and gave  an overview about the activities that we are going to take, but first we paid the environmental fee P20.00, tour guide fee P1250 (for those who are camping overnight and this can be divided among your group, maximum of 10 persons), and the flashlight fee P30.00 (for the cave adventure).

 The tourist guide will ask you if what trail would you prefer, I suggest you ask kuya the more challenging trail :))

after that the CRC Adventure begins. . .

There will be a lot of walking and climbing but it will all be worth in in the end, I swear.

There are a lot of rock formations there where in you can take your #friendshipgoals pictures.

The water there is very clear, crystal clear.

You have to be very careful because one wrong step you might slip.

One very rocky road we have there

You can also do rock balancing there

 Tinipak River

We had a little rest before going to our next activity. 

The portal to the Bat cave

 Hi Ruthy!

We saw a lot of stalactite inside and It was beautiful. Just a little reminder please do not touch the stalactites because they are very sensitive and it might deteriorate.

You can also swim inside the cave.

More swimming

 After all of the tiring activities, we decided to chill and have a kwentuhan session with kuya Randy.

And then I had my Shan Cai moments

Its amazing how God created these rock formations, during the whole duration of the trip I just kept on saying "wow, ang ganda" (wow, it's beautiful)

 After that we went back to our camp site and called it a day.

 One last look.
I fell in love with the place.

I just want to commend the tourist guides of Daraitan for being accommodating and informative, there was no dull moments because of the stories they tell, shout out to Kuya Randy who made our adventure extra challenging by making us gapang, langoy, akyat and many other things, It was super fun.

Just a few reminders if you are planning to have a tour on mount Daraitan and Tinipak river:

1. Be sure you are fit enough because this is not just an ordinary activity, it requires a lot of energy and physical activities

2. Wear a very durable shoes because you will be dealing with a lot of climbing, trekking, walking and etc.

3. Bring lots and lots of water, you don't want to be dehydrated along the way. Also bring food, something that you can eat a long the way.

4. Wear sunblock to protect your skin from sunburn.

5. Bring swimsuit if you are planning to take a swim at the Tinipak River. (you have to experience the Tinipak river waterfalls and take a swim at the daraitan cave)

6. If you are planning to bring a pocket wifi, there's no wifi signal and they only have limited phone services.

7. Do not forget to bring your camera to capture the memories.

8.  Last but not the least, ENJOY!

Off to our next adventure!
