Tinipak River, an awesome place that boasts white marbled rocks and pristine water located in a quaint community in Tanay, Rizal. Unusual marble rock formations, in-cave natural swimming pool and its only 3 hours away from Manila make this gem a perfect getaway for the weekend.

One of my friends told me her experience about this beautiful river and the things they do like cliff jumping, swimming, exploring cave, camping and swimming in the underground river. Their story is enough for me to add this hidden gem to my next journey.
