“Famous for the sulfur hot spring, its numerous waterfalls, a lagoon, a butterfly sanctuary and adventure activities like zipline and wall climbing, Mambukal Mountain Resort in the town of Murcia is the perfect escape from the busy city life where you’ll be one with nature. This is also the home of the Mudpack Festival celebrated every 3rd week of June. To get there, take a Libertad jeep from the city proper and tell the driver to drop you at the jeepney terminal to Murcia. Travel time is about 45 minutes to an hour and costs less than Php 50.”
