La Mesa Nature Reserve
Flora and fauna
The closest landmark is the SM Fairview, which you can get to via bus (direct from Ayala Avenue, Makati CBD) or jeepney. From SM Fairview you can take another bus/jeepney or tricycle to the entrance of the Nature Reserve along Quirino Highway.
General admission for most activities is P200/person, with a minimum of five participants up to maximum of 15. However, this is rather flexible and can be arranged at the park entrance.
There are several activities that you can do in the nature reserve: trekking/hiking, biking (you need to bring your own bike), trail running and bird watching (bring your own binoculars). The Nature Reserve is open 6am to 5pm daily, including holidays. Closed on the 25th December and the 31st December.
Activities like biking require advanced booking. Please contact the Bantay Kalikasan Head Office at 4109670, the Project Management Office (02) 938-2540 or one of the staff:
