Rajah Sikatuna National Park
Rajah Sikatuna National Park information
The Rajah Sikatuna National Park is an immense 9000 hectares of native molave forest and grasslands, kilometres of haphazardly marked trails, more than 100 caves and a dubious camping area (per person P30) that is little more than a sign in a small, cleared zone. With assistance from foreign NGOs, the Philippine government is trying to protect the park from gradual destruction by providing alternative livelihood programs for illegal loggers – it’s potentially prime birdwatching territory and home to tarsiers, flying lemurs, civet cats, monitor lizards and monkeys. The crew at nearby Nuts Huts may be able to suggest walks.
