Tribes & Treks Tour at San Felipe, Zambales

The poverty of the environment is the poverty of our people. We must work together to end the poverty of the people and the environment.

Be the real weekend warrior. Trek the ancestral land of the Aetas to visit the village of Yangil. Help preserve the local culture and fight climate change by rebuilding a rainforest that will also provide food, medicine, and income for the community. Have fun making a difference!

TOUR DATES: June 17, 24 | July 1, 8, 15

The Tribes, Treks, and Rainforest Tour is a joint partnership with the Municipality of San Felipe, Zambales, The Circle Hostel, and Hineleban Foundation.

Trek by a river in between mountains to the village of Yangil.

Help plant a 3000-hectare rainforest to support the Aetas' sustainability.
