Hidden in the mountains of Sierra Madre in Tanay, Rizal is a paradise known as Daraitan. Mountain bike adventurers will surely love this place because of its amazing river and rock formations. We will bike through single tracks and countless river crossings. Our Daraitan River mountain bike adventure is not complete without a visit to an abandoned dam project known as Laiban Dam.
After visiting the Laiban Dam, we will proceed to Daraitan and then trek for 40 minutes to Tinipak River and Tinipak Cave. It’s a wonderful limestone rock formation. Also, the water in the river is so clear you can see the bottom.
The Daraitan River mountain bike adventure is a one of a kind adventure that you can do with your friends any day of the week. If you are exhausted from work and need to release some stress, Daraitan is the place to go.
