See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me, And no one knows, how far it goes…

Minalungao National Park is the latest pop discovery of netizens online. Who would not be mesmerize by its crystal blue-green waters? The photos shared online are so inviting, that i decided to include this as a side-trip of our Baler Trip.

First things first, Minalungao National Park is located in Gen. Tinio, Nueva Ecija. Boulder in between the limestone walls of the Sierra Madre mountain range and trans versing the Penaranda River.
