Bulabog Puti-An National Park Travel Guide

Bulabog Putian National Park is a sizeable protected rainforest to the north of Iloilo City on Panay Island in the Visayas. It has an amazing display of foliage and is pockmarked with dozens of caves.

The caves are the main asset of the park for most visitors, who need to do some serious trekking to get to the best of them. Some of the caves were used during the Spanish occupational period of the Philippines as a hideout for the revolutionary forces in Iloilo. Various texts adorn the walls of some of the caves. The walk to the caves goes over striking limestone rocks.

Also in the park is the hundred year old Dingle Church which was constructed using limestone rock within the park. The park itself covers around 850 hectares of pristine forested land where you can lose yourself year-round.
