How do you get to Montalban ?
town's new name is Rodriguez. Montalban used
to be associated with mountain trekking, the Wawa Dam, dumpsite and
quarrying. Thanks to Avilon Zoo, Montalban is now included in the
must-see places of animal and nature lovers.
There are 3
routes. One is via Marikina-from "Bayan"- go to JP Rizal Ave, straight
to San Mateo, the next town is Montalban. Another is via Commonwealth
going to Fairview - right turn to SandiganBayan, then along the Batasan
Pambansa gate, right turn to a road leading down to San Mateo. The
third route is from Commonwealth Litex - pass Payatas, and after about
15-20 minutes travel time, you make a right turn to Montalban Highway.
Down the road, pass the bridge and the Montalban public market and at
end of the highway, you will see Mercury Drug and take a left turn.
Soon you will see the town church and the town hall. Road will turn
right, watch out for the TOTAL Gas Station. Here's how to go to Avilon Zoo ...
you pass the San Mateo town (1st and 2nd routes above), you will see
the Montalban/Rodriguez Welcome Arch and the "AVILON ZOO - This way"
signboard. Just follow the road and in less than 5 minutes (no
traffic), you will pass Mercury Drug on your right. Still straight
ahead, pass the church and the town hall, the road turns right and and
farther down you see the TOTAL gas station. Less than 100 meters
ahead, you will see the Eastwood Greenview subdivision on your left. Turn left to the subdivision
entrance, pass a bridge you get to a rotunda or circle. You don't
need to go around the circle, just turn left slowly to make sure there
is no approaching vehicle. Again go straight ahead until you reach a
dead-end. On your left you will see a bridge road and a river. Turn
right and little farther you will see a small dirt road on your left.
Turn here and in less than 5 minutes, you will see the Avilon Zoo
structure and gate on your right.
