A towering tree of gigantic proportion. In surrounding area you can observe unusually big species of plants that resembles common plants in everybody's garden. Must be of interest for Biologists and plant enthusiast. Minimal entrance fee is collected in this attraction.

We enjoyed this visit because the tree is really enormous that it allows for people to enter the hallow part of the tree. It can be an enchanting experience for those who allow the mystery of the balete tree to play Into one's imagination. Allow the local guide to take photos (they are trained) for you (be sure to give a tip)! There is also a banana tree with a "hundred" fruits.

I have always been wary of Balete trees because they say that all balete trees are enchanted. It was really a different experience going inside it's enormous trunk though. You should try it! This Millenium Tree is also extra special as it is considered the biggest Balete Tree in Asia, and there is a wishing well at the side.

Well, for me all Balete Tree is enchanted. What more if it's as huge as this tree? Right. There is a small cave-like in the center of this tree. You may took a photo around it's perimeter and be sure to focus the Camera because sometimes the photo captured were somewhat blurry. Some guide's here do tricks in capturing the photos and make them awesomely nice.

it's literally aurora's balete drive because of the tree itself. it takes at least 110 steps to go around the tree. the cave inside the trunk costs only 10 pesos to be explored and one should not miss this. it's a rare experience to get inside a tree so big.

it's not forbidden to climb (yes, because it's a tree, remember?) but you can do so at your own risk. if you don't have a good grip when ascending, just be content having your photo taken at the ground level.

this tree is one of a kind. you cannot afford to miss this.

It may seem trivial to be swayed to find the Balete Tree during a trip to Baler just to take a selfie. Yet travelers who take the effort just to find such renowned tree will be delighted not just with amazing pictures to boast on their social media accounts but an encounter with how locals are transformed by tourism as well. During our trip, we were guided by a young local who would direct amazing & interesting poses, worthy of our suspended disbelief once the immortalized shots are reflected in our cameras.

Good clean pay toilets and a strangler fig (Balete). Not really worth a visit, Pay to get in, pay to walk in to the dead heart of the tree. OK to climber around on, so better for younger people.

Definitely humongous and amazing... Comparing this to the Balete trees found at Ninony Aquino Parks and Wildlife (where I frequent)... them are bushes...

Balete trees have always been linked to the supernatural, creatures and elementals dwell on these trees... And the organizer mentioned that superstitious belief, I just replied "with too many people/ tourists swarming that tree... definitely those creatures have moved out.. Sila na ang nag-adjust."

Great for taking pictures. Minimal fee of about P10-15 entrance to the site and an additional P10 for going inside the tree. Or you can have their resident photographer take instragrammable pictures of your group and take you on a tour inside and out of the tree.
