Climbing Tip : How to get to Daraitan in Tanay Rizal

Daraitan is a trekking destination nestled within the Sierra Madre mountain range in Tanay Rizal. Last June 2010, my mountaineering group, the Sosyal Klaymers and our friends from the other group enjoyed 2-days of camping, river trekking, rock climbing, swimming, cam whore-ing and spelunking. (click here for the related blog post)

If you're up for this kind of adventure, here's how you can get there.

1. From Shaw Boulevard, take a jeepney bound for Tanay Rizal. Travel time is around 1.5 to 2 hours, fare is approximately Php 50 pesos.

2. Get off at Tanay Public Market and proceed to the jeepney terminal located at the back. Take the jeepney going to Brgy. Daraitan, fare is around Php 60 pesos. Travel time is about an hour. You can also rent the whole jeepney for Php 1,500 pesos.

The Tanay-Daraitan route has scheduled trips at 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM from the terminal in Tanay Market and at 9:00 AM and after lunch from Daraitan.

3. Upon reaching Brgy. Daraitan, look for the Barangay Hall and have yourselves registered in the logbook, pay Php 10.00 pesos each as registration fee. Guides are also available here for Php 250 pesos per guide.

Rates and fares are correct at the time of visit.
