Enjoy the Outdoors and Wake Up to a Sea of Clouds at this Scenic Tanay Campsite

You don't even have to go hiking!
by | May 20, 2021


After more than a year of being on lockdown, it’s normal that you would want to go out and have a breather, aside from your typical trips to the wet market or grocery. Outdoor activities are the safest way to go and you can enjoy camping without leaving the NCR Bubble at Treasure Mountain in Rizal.

 

Treasure Mountain

Nestled in Tanay, Rizal, Treasure Mountain is a campsite overlooking the Sierra Madre mountain range, perfect for those who want to experience camping for the first time or want to go offline even just for a night.

Don’t worry about having any experience in hiking; you don’t have to hike to reach the campsite! You can bring your vehicle, park at the jump-off point, and ride a tricycle going to the site. The road can be very bumpy, so it’s recommended to go for the tricycle ride unless you own a 4×4 vehicle.


 

Camping

Adventure seekers keep coming back here. This campsite is famous for its sea of clouds, which you can enjoy best between 5 AM and 8 AM.

It’s a breath-taking view worth the early rise. The view is similar to the sea of clouds you’ll see in Mt. Pulag, minus the hours-long drive and hike up north.

The campsite opens at 4 AM, which makes it easier for guests to catch a glimpse of the sunrise even if they’re not staying overnight. No camping is complete without preparing meals, and guests are free to bring their own.

Camping rates start at P1,300 for 2 pax. This is inclusive of the overnight fee, breakfast, and a tent with sleeping mats, pillows, and a blanket.

 

High Ropes

Ready to get physical? Aside from overnight camping, Treasure Mountain also gives a unique twist to a typical obstacle course.

The High Ropes course is suspended in mid-air, giving the extra challenge but with a scenic view. If you’re afraid of heights, are you ready to conquer that fear?

Rates for the High Ropes Obstacle Course start at Php 150 for just the Spider’s Web and P250 for the entire course.

 

Other activities

If you plan on just doing a day tour, going for the ATV rental is a must! The one-hour P1,200 rental fee is inclusive of the hike up and down the mountain ranges where you can stop at different spots for picture-taking.

Swimming with a mountain view is also made possible at the campsite, with an entrance fee of P150 per head for adults.

You can also rent cottages that can accommodate 5-10 guests, starting at P350.

 

Overnight stays at Treasure Mountain are only allowed from Fridays to Sundays. For more information, visit their official Facebook page.
