A lot has changed since I was last here about four years ago - the place has become so commercialized! Everything needs to be paid - the entrance, the parking, going inside the tree, the toilets. The giant tree now looks a lot older and...More

Great experience as this tree is big enough for people to enter and can even accommodate up to 10 or more at the same time. Nature at its best. The guide also take great photos....worth a try. Nice experience.

At 600 years old, this enchanting is a must visit attraction because it is the oldest tree in the Philippines and the largest Balete tree in Asia. Its enormous trunk is equivalent to 62 men holding hands with arms outstretched. The tree’s thick roots developed...More

Definitely a tree worth visiting. You'll be amazed the number of photo shot styles you'll be able to make with this tree as main focus. The local photographers can definitely help you create great memories and they don't charge so much... panoramic, time lapse, etc.
