Second day in Nueva Ecija we don’t have an itinerary, we don’t know yet where to go luckily I have a photocopy of all possible tourist destination in Nueva Ecija we went to Cabanatuan Public Terminal where we can ask the locals the best place to visit. Our first option was Pantabangan Dam because the place is very common. We change our plan, also our main target more on nature trip not a man made tourist attraction. The group decided to go to Gabaldon Falls, a trike driver approached our group asking where our destination, we asked if he knows the Gabaldon Falls he knew the place but he don’t know exactly the waterfalls is, our buddy Weng she negotiated with the fee how much will be his service, the trike driver’s first offer was 1,200.00 for roundtrip but we asked a discount of 200.00, fortunately he deal with 1,000.00.
Along the trail they made a bamboo bridge used by the hikers and there also short portion of river crossing.

Exploring Nueva Ecija: Minalungao National Park
How to get there
Ride a bus bound for
Cabanatuan, like Baliwag
Transit, Five Star, and ES Transport at EDSA Cubao.
At Cabanatuan terminal ride a jeep or hire a trike directly to Gabaldon town proper. the travel time almost 2hours.
When you are already at Gabaldon ask the locals where to find the Eco Park because at the Eco Park where you will register and arrange for a guide, the hike going to the Gabaldon falls it's only 30-45minutes.
