Entrance Fee: None
Open Hours: Tuesdays to Fridays, 8am - 5pm
How to get there (commute): Jeep to Angono (from Cubao or Antipolo) then Trike for P200 one way

It's above the mountains so that's why it would cost P200 for a trike to take you there and another P200 to bring you back to the main road. But if you have a car, much better!

For the adventure part, there's this cave you have to enter to get to the petrogylphs but that's it. The cave where the petroglyphs already has a barrier to prevent people in vandalizing the cave. I was in awe of how the drawings were, and in realizing that this was the home to our ancestors.

I just hope there was atleast a small exhibit explaining more of the lifestyle of the early Filipinos in this kinds of shelter. But we were told that the place had some displays before already beside the cave.

Entering thru the naturally lighted manmade tunnel was uneventful. Just be mindful of your steps. The guard is courteous, no fees to be paid here. We were instructed to go to the small office which is manned by, at this time, Ms. Esperanza Jacob, who is very accommodating and friendly with us and sharing her knowledge about the petroglyphs. Do not expect much though, remember that this is neolithic age rock art. What is staggering to realize is that the glyphs are are over 3000 years old. The view deck served as protection from vandalism which you will see the etched among the glyphs. Quite comfortable too.

If you're going to pinto art gallery, might as well drop by the angono petroglyphs. Its free. 20minute stop is enough. If they can put more information about the history of the place in the lobby, it could be more interesting for tourists

The Angono- Binangonan Petroglyphs is the oldest work of Art in the Philippines. with over 127 stone carvings it is truly amazing. People should be made aware more of the importance of these artifacts and the youths must be exposed to this for them to protect this... Rizal is truly the Art capital of the Philippines...
