Capturing Contrasts and Complements

There were times as I wandered in other parts of Asia, I could also find the Philippines fitting in the picture. And vice versa – the countries, where I have been, were also remembered in some of our own spots. The following captures from my lens are either in contrast or complementary. I am presenting […]

Weekend Whereabouts: Sneak Peek of Pinto Art Museum

On my 73rd weekend project, I decided to visit an art gallery and museum situated at the one hectare Silangan Gardens in Antipolo, Rizal called Pinto Art Museum. Pinto Art Museum is a good place to find inspiration from the country’s contemporary art. It is collaborative effort of the Silangan Foundation for the Arts, Culture and Ecology. Pinto Art Museum is another testimony to the Rizal Province as the Arts Capital of the Philippines. The full blog post about the visit is underway.

Tinipak River

Tinipak River

Tinipak River, more popularly called and passed by word of mouth by the tourists as Daraitan River, is regarded as the cleanest river in the Southern Tagalog Region in Luzon. The wide white wall of limestone and large boulders and rock installations at the end of the river trek plus the calming sound of the jade river are worth the sweat. There’s even a cave nearby that you can explore given the tide is low and rapids aren’t that strong.

How To Get There:

From Shaw Boulevard, take the van bound to Tanay, Rizal that stops at the public market of Tanay. Hire a tricycle going to Brgy. Daraitan. Before reaching to the other side where the barangay proper is, you will take a raft. Ride another tricycle. Register to the visitors center.

How Did I Get There:

I joined my fellow tour organizers, Jez and Box of Just Go, as a participant. For only PhP850, the dayhike open-trip fee includes roundtrip transfers, registration and guide fees, lunch and awesome photo and video coverage of Box, an indie filmmaker. Oha! But I got mine for free.

As an adventure and thrill seeker, I enjoyed the trek in the river banks and at certain heights we even hike along the feet of the mountain. I was really amazed by the great wall. It’s like the pearl white version of the Grand Canyon. We felt closer with the nature that I even fell asleep as it cradles me. We weren’t able to do spelunking and swimming near the Great White Wall because of the high tide and strong water current but we got our chance to take dip into the cold waters of Tinipak River later somewhere in the flat river bed.
