unnamed cave, Biak-na-Bato National Park, Bulacan
the Biak-na-Bato National Park is both an important biodiversity area and historical landmark. within its labyrinth caves the Magdalo-led soldiers established the Biak-na-Bato Republic on November 1897. it was the headquarters of the Philippine government for over a month until Gen. Aguinaldo agreed to be exiled in HongKong as part of the peace pact that they signed with the Spanish government.
today the Biak-na-Bato National Park is under threat because of continuous mining and quarrying operations within the park.
going to BnBNP? take a bus to the historical town of San Miguel, Bulacan. from there, take a tricycle to Biak-na-Bato. cave guides are required and will be provided in the registration area. don't forget to bring your headlamps or flashlights :)
*everyweek, I will feature a snapshot of an amazing place from my "baul". cheers!*
