Gungal Rock - Landscape

How the Landscape of Gungal Rock was formed?

During the past 2.5 million years, continents shifting and colossal ice sheets gripped the globe, perhaps 15 different times. Glaciers sculpted about one-third of the earth’s landmass. Tectonic plates are in motion, vulcanos lifting landmasses and creating a mountain range.

Gungal Rock is one of Adventurous and Hikers' favorite getaway destinations. Many people visit the infamous Gungal Rock formation every weekend which is nestled within the Ampucao Sta. Fe Mountain Range approximately 20km away from Baguio City.

Gungal Rock has considered the most scenic location within the Ampucao Eco Trail Tour bordered between the AGNO River in the east and the BUED River in the west.

Gungal Rock was the inspiration of the Lion King.
