Masungi Georeserve is a hidden rustic rock garden in the province, where its name is derived from the local term “masungki”, with the literal meaning “spiked”, which is due to the landscape of spur of limestone.

Who would have thought that this destination filled with limestone rocks will serve as a truly fascinating attraction in Rizal?

Aside from the wonderful limestone rock formations at the conservation area, another thing that makes this a must-go spot among tourists is the creative and exciting trail of rocks, nets, rope courses and hanging bridges that will test your strength as you pass through the Discovery Trail.

Standing in this spot will surely give you the feels of being like the infamous superhero that has the ability to travel to places by emitting webs in his hands—Spiderman.

There’s also a new path at Masungi which you can rely on when you suddenly feel tired. Sawa, a hanging bridge which is shaped like a belly of a giant python.

If you want to test your physical strength, dare to walk through the steep rope course, which is shaped like the monitor lizard. Hence the name, Bayawak.
