Gintung Pakpak Ecopark is a gem of a place that seamlessly combines serene landscapes with the wonders of nature. From the moment guests step into its expansive domain, they are welcomed by a tapestry of trees and lush greenery, setting the stage for an experience that will have nature lovers smiling from ear to ear.

The ecopark offers exclusivity and seclusion, with a location that enables guests to disconnect from the frenetic pace of city life, allowing them to immerse themselves in the serene surroundings. 

It boasts a plethora of settings perfect for Instagram-worthy moments. Whether captivated by a breathtaking sunset or enchanted by the magic of sunrise, guests will have plenty of opportunities to capture nature’s beauty.

The property is full of mango, santol, and Mabolo trees, which ensure a cooler climate than usual. More importantly, the grandeur of the Mt. Arayat forest adds an extra layer of allure to this enchanting landscape.

For accommodations, the ecopark presents a blend of modern comfort and rustic charm. Guests have the option to choose between a concrete hut or the traditional allure of a nipa hut. Regardless, they’ll be waking up to the serenade of birds and the soft embrace of the sun’s rays.

There’s a swimming pool, too, which is a perfect way to cool off and feel rejuvenated.

One of the most captivating features of Gintung Pakpak Ecopark is the bonfire experience. At night, guests can gather around the crackling flames, sharing stories or just watching the stars (Writer’s Note: In our case, during a recent visit as part of the NLEX Lakbay Norte, we played charades while enjoying a beer or two).

And when the day’s adventures end, guests will be able to retire to the comfort and simplicity of their rooms.

Gintung Pakpak Ecopark is a place that seamlessly integrates modern amenities with the inherent beauty of nature. Thoughtfully designed to meld with the mountain’s natural contours, it’s an ideal place to hold a family retreat, a corporate event, or a quick backpacking escape.
