When the noise of the city and demands of our everyday lives get too much, it’s totally okay to feel overwhelmed and take some days off. With remote schedules, everything just feels more challenging, and treating yourself with a relaxing getaway might do the trick. If you’re looking for a new adventure to try or simply want to breathe in the fresh air, discover this picturesque campsite just a few hours from the metro:
Abong Mi Kubo & Camp
Nestled in the mountains of Calawis in Antipolo, Rizal, Abong Mi Kubo & Camp is a newly-opened site that offers a peaceful sanctuary for those who seek an off-grid experience. A picturesque mountain view, sounds of flowing water from the river, fresh air, and peace are just some of what awaits in this hideaway. The camp experience begins with a 20–30-minute hike up the mountains, so make sure you’re geared up for the little adventure.
Once you reach the property, you’ll be greeted by a breathtaking mountain view, which will be your front yard during your stay.
