Go on a hike and enjoy the air’s freshness of the forest.
Savor the generous helpings of freshly prepared healthy dishes (you can request for vegan/vegetarian options, too!).
Sleep in cozy kubo-style cabins and let the sound of crickets and the flowing brook serve as your lullaby.
Take a dip in the pool.
Bond with your barkada in the game room.
Meditate and have your reflective moments in nicely decorated huts.
All these you can do at Mount Purro Nature Reserve.
If you’re looking for a quick getaway and escape the hustle and bustle of the city, then this place would be perfect. Sounds like a promotional campaign but really, if you’re into nature and trees, like me, you’ll appreciate Mount Purro which is located at Barangay Calawis, Antipolo City, and is about an hour and a half away drive from Quezon City. It started as a reforestation area now it boasts of facilities and activities suited for everyone.
Truly, we always go back to nature for healing and rejuvenation. I just wish we could bring more of nature, greeneries, and trees to the city so we don’t have to go somewhere else to escape the concrete jungle.
