7 Places to Try Rock Climbing around the Philippines

Climb on and feel like a rock star!

Nagtipunan, a town in Quirino province where several major tributaries of the Cagayan River converge, is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Siitan River is one spot where you can enjoy boating, camping, picnics and river tubing. The whole area is surrounded by towering wall of limestones covered in lush vegetation just waiting to be scaled. Though commercial rock climbing is not yet operational, some spots here are being developed by members of the climbing gym Power Up.

According to Quirino tourism staff, over 22 routes have been developed but fees and usage of the routes are still being studied. Experienced climbers will need to bring their own gear if they’re interested to climb.
