The Gintung Pakpak Ecopark is located on the slopes of Mount Arayat in Pampanga Province. Founded in October 1969 by Angelito Gomez, the Gintung Pakpak Retreat House is a peace and beauty welcoming those who seek to deepen their relationship with God, and dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction in the tradition The Retreat House offers a variety of silent retreats for clergy, religious, and laity. The retreats are given in the Ignition tradition by an experienced staff religious, and lay spiritual directors. The retreats are open to anyone, regardless of parish or faith affiliation. We offer our individually directed retreats in the Ignition tradition—that is to say that retreat ants agree to abstain from conversation during their stay, except during the daily meetings with their spiritual director and participation in the celebration of Eucharist.
To get to the Gintung Pakpak Ecopark from Metro Manila, take the Angeles City exit at the North Luzon Expressway. From there, direct your way to the road (Magalang-Pandan Rd.) going to Magalang town proper which will probably take 20 minutes travel time, depending on the traffic. When you reach the end of Magalang town proper you will see a sign pointing to the right towards the direction of the eco-park. From this marker you will have to travel around 5-10 minutes to reach the corner (left side, if you’re coming from Magalang) going to the foothill of Mt. Arayat. Fom there visible signs will guide you directly towards the gate of Gintung Pakpak Eco-park .
