IKET River: A Paradise in Bulacan (with location and photos)

IKET River





There is only one reason why you're reading this right now. Let me guess. You want to know the location of this underrated, hidden, yet astounding spot in Bulacan called IKET RIVER? At dahil I'm a straight-forward person, sabi nga nila, "wag ng magpa ligoy ligoy pa." :)








So where is it? It's in Sitio Dos, Brgy. Camachin, DRT Bulacan

                                        (DRT, AKLE)




Honestly speaking, this place is not popular in Bulacan. Only a few Bulakenyos know where and how to get here. DRT itself is not a well-known place in Bulacan and you need perseverance if you really want to reach this paradise with crystal-clear water, nestled between a forest and astonishing  river rocks.

What's the catch?

1. The entrance fee is 10 pesos only. That is around $0.22 only!
2. There are 6 cottages. You can rent one for 150 pesos ($3-4)
3. Nipa hut with 1 room - 400 pesos (daytime)
4. According to the caretaker, you can also stay overnight, but he only gave a ballpark figure which is around 2,000 pesos if you want to use the nipa hut magdamag. Just haggle since wala pa daw nag try na mag overnight. You can always try to negotiate. :)
5. There's a large parking area.
6. There's a wet market nearby.
7. There's a grill area and you can also ask the caretaker to cook for you.


It's not easy to find IKET river if it's your first time. I strongly suggest to visit this place with your own vehicle. DRT Akle is near San Rafael and San Ildefonso, which are some of the most popular districts in Bulacan. But then, if you're a nature lover on the go and you're strict with your budget, this one's for you. Obviously, it's worth it.

Tip: Use Google Maps. You can start from SM Baliuag and use Akle Elementary School as your destination. Will post the exact directions soon.
