Ultimate Guide for Budget Traveler and Adventure Seeker

Farm Tour in Adventure Farm at Timberland Heights

Some of us want to leave Manila for nature adventures. If you want to see a new place, smell some fresh air and a little peace with overlooking the city,  you can visit the newest attraction in San Mateo, Rizal, the Adventure Farm at Timberland Heights.


The farm opened last October 2014 and is situated in a 60,000 sqm. lot inside Timberland Heights. It was designed to create an exciting, fun-filled and educational experience for its visitors. The farm combines education and new technologies in farming to teach children about life in the farm. It can accommodate 400 to 500 people.



Recently, we're invited at the Adventure Farm for an overnight stay. We tried its adventure Playground, a 1.2 KM trail composed of exciting obstacles which tested our strength and endurance. We walked, we ran and we crawled. The activity was fun yet challenging! It's like we joined on a spartan race challenge. I'm pretty sure this playground will surely enjoy by adventure seekers and outdoor activity enthusiasts.




Aside from Adventure Playground, we also visited the "Rain Gardens". There's a small pond where we found some water plants, fishes and ducks swimming over the shallow water. It's nice to feed fishes and ducks. They're really cute.


If you love to see beautiful creatures, head over to their "Butterfly Buddies." It's a quiet sanctuary of butterflies in different colors and sizes. Our guide gave us a lot of information about butterflies especially their methamorphosis.


For those who are interested on planting, the "Green House and Herb Terraces are the place to be. You can find here different varieties of herbs and vegetables like lettuce, basil, rose mary, lavander, tomatoes, herbal plants, among others. There's a guide that will teach on how to plant properly. For animal lovers, there's also an area where you can play with their organic chickens, ducks and pigs.


One of the highlights of our farmtrip was an overnight camping at the hilltop overlooking La Mesa Dam and Metro Manila. At night, the buildings and houses showcased colorful and bright lights. They're sparkling in the dark. You can test here your photography skills at low light.


If you wish to stay overnight in the Adventure Farm, you can bring our own tent or rent them at the admin office. The open hilltop is a perfect place for bonding with your friends and family. The camping site has decent bathroom and shower room facilities.


Near the Adventure Farm, you can also indulge in some of activities like waterfalls trekking, biking and running. Waterfalls  adventure is at P150/head (minimum of 5 pax). Bike rental is at  P100/head inclusive of safety gear.

The Adventure Farm is truly a perfect place to connect with nature and a temporary escape from the stressful city life, offering an ideal venue for family bonding, educational learning in observance of biodiversity and even an event venue partner for all occasions.

Thank you The Dennis Murillo Photography and Ruel Umali Photography for the wonderful photos.
