Masungi Georeserve to Implement New Conservation Fees for 2017

After emerging as one of the most visited eco-tourist site, which is just a few hours away from Manila, the georeserve is now about to implement new conservation fees by the start of 2017.

If you and your family are planning to visit the Masungi Georeserve this coming holiday season, try doing it within this month as the georeserve will be implementing new conservation fees as upcoming year starts.

New conservation fees are as follows:

Mondays to Fridays - Php1,500.00 per head
Saturdays to Sundays - Php1,800.00 per head

The new conservation fee includes a ranger provided to the group, together with rental of helmets and backpacks, water refills and complementary lights snacks.

Nevertheless, those who have booked their reservations before November 26, 2016 for visits from December 1, 2016 and onwards will not be affected with the change in conservation fee.

Masungi Georeserve claimed that the new conservation fees will help a lot in equalizing demand across schedules. The georeserve’s management team hinted that since the area can only hold limited capacity of visitors, the increased rate of conservation fee will discourage scalping and mass booking of schedules in the area.

Other the change in fees, Masungi Georeserve broke the news that a new improvement will also be opening at the end of the trail wherein leaves and fruits-inspired hammocks of different shapes and sizes can be found. The newly opened area will be called “Dahon” Village, The hammocks can be rented by the guests following a long and winding trek through the trail.
