We Found This Hidden Gem In Maragondon

Maragondon Cavite is probably known to many because of the famous Pico De Loro Mountain or maybe as the place where Andres Bonifacio was sentenced and killed. Interestingly, Maragondon has many other equally-engaging places to offer. There’s the historic Our Lady of the Assumption Parish Church or simply Maragondon Church which is declared by National Museum as a National Cultural Treasure.

There’s also a visit-worthy monument dedicated to Andress Bonifacio at the foot of Mount Nagpatong. People can also go for an exciting Raft ride and explore the stretch of the Maragondon River. Recently, my Uncle decided to take us to an interesting location in Maragondon. The place is called Tulay B and others are calling it Mabacao. It is just few meters away from the Pantihan Falls.
I was not expecting to see something grand but I was mesmerized by the stunning rock formations that you can see along the river banks. The place is very unspoiled and you can barely see houses along the way.
20180102_110424tI actually thought that we are just going to marvel the place and these amazing rock formation because I don’t think the place is good and safe for swimming.
Well, not until we saw this! There were cottages beside the river. We also encountered some locals who told us that people used to visit the place especially every summer. It was just January when we visited the place so there were no crowd at all.
The cottages are for free as well (except for peak season). Take note that this is not a commercial place so there is no stores or comfort rooms nearby.

The water level can go as deep as waist-high to more than 6 ft. There are however, some shallow areas beside the river bed but if you’re bringing kids with you, make sure to keep an eye on them.

The place somehow reminds me of the Minalungao National Park but not into that great scale.
Still the rock formations are still something to marvel
