This is a bit of a drive considering traffic. But the visit is worth it considering these are 3000 years old. Nice place for kids to see and appreciate.

We went here with some friends to explore the beauty of Angono Rizal and all I can say is that its worth to come here especially if you are interested with history and palaeographical stuff. It has a viewing deck where you can see the petroglyphs and carvings resembling human, frogs and lizards. When we come here, the tour guide was not around but thanks to a very intelligent sweeper who assisted our questions. Going here is kinda rough since you have to deal with steep roads. It is near Thunderbird Resort. You can either take Antipolo-Mahabang Parang Route or the Angono-Binangonan Highway. Entrance Fee is P10.

Roden Santiago the National Museum guide in the site has extensive knowledge of the petroglyphs and the history of the area. The petroglyphs are easy to see, access is made possible by a new viewing deck. It's also free!
It's fully outdoors so dress for the weather.

In the Philippines, the oldest petroglyphs are found in Angono, Rizal. In March 1965, it was discovered by Carlos Botong Francisco and his troop of boy scouts in a field trip to the hinterlands of Angono and Binangonan. The shallow rock shelter is adorned with carvings resembling that of human, frogs, and lizards. There could probably be more had natural elements and vandalism not ruined this archeological site. Pursuant to the provisions of Presidential Decre No. 260, the Angono Petroglyphs was declared by the National Museum as a National Cultural Treasure in 1973. In 1985, it was included in the World Inventory of Rock Art.
