All about Hinulugang Taktak Nature & Adventure Park
Aside from its 21-metre waterfalls, Hinulugang Taktak Nature & Adventure Park houses a range of other attractions and activities. For those seeking an adrenaline rush, explore the park’s Canopy Walk zone free of charge! Here, you can walk through its hanging bridges, try wall climbing, splash around the swimming pool, or dare to lie down on the spider web platform hanging just right above the falls. It also has a rappelling zone; however, it is currently still under maintenance.
Planning to visit the park soon? As of writing, there’s no need to book your visit in advance since the park operates on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you get there, all you have to do is sign up for free at the entrance and wait for your gate pass. You’ll have to present this again when you exit the premises.
While this nature and adventure park is a place for families and barkadas to experience chills and thrills, there are some things to keep in mind to ensure a safe visit:
- All visitors must wear the proper clothing and shoes. And no, your Crocs or bicycle shoes won’t do, so be sure to wear rubber shoes with laces.
- No pets allowed, so your fur buds will have to stay at home for this one.
- Lastly, park amenities and activities only allow those aged 14 years old and above as part of its safety standards.
Follow these guidelines and you’re all set for an exhilarating experience out of harm’s way!
