The Masungi Georeserve is a conservation area and a rustic rock garden tucked in the rainforests of Rizal. Masungi’s name is derived from the word “masungki” which translates to “spiked” - an apt description for the sprawling limestone landscape found within.

In this sanctuary, guests will be able to commune with nature, and reenergise themselves while doing so. Wander through our pathways for an encounter with wildlife and plant species. Enjoy light snacks before exiting the trail. Learn more about the history of the place introducing you to a community rich with heritage and life.

“The georeserve is an area we have been protecting for over twenty years now. Having to deal with a myriad of illegal loggers, quarries, and others, it has been a challenge, but ultimately a meaningful and fulfilling one. Now, Masungi is a sanctuary for over hundreds of native wildlife species. We are excited to share our love for the place with you. We hope that you see something special in it like we did. We saved it before, and with your help we can continue to save it against many different threats.”
