One of General Tinio’s Tourist attractions is the Minalungao National Park, located at Sitio Minalungao, Barangay Pias. Considered one of the few remaining natural environments in Central Luzon. The Minalungao National Park got its name from the words mina which literally means mine and lungao which translates to cave. With that being said, you should expect spelunking as one of the things to do. To complete the experience, bring your friends and set up camp, float on a raft, dive off a cliff, climb on a boulder and hike a trail. The Park has great potential for ecotourism and is awaiting development. Its pristine river,spring and unique geological features characterized by breathtaking rock formations, offer an exhilarating experience to discerning tourists. Because of its remote location, solace and refuge are bestowed to weary souls longing for tranquility and peace.
