The road going to Baler is not all paved there are short portions that has not yet been paved, between Talavera in Nueva Ecija and Aurora Province. Although, as of this writing, the roads are being paved. It can be reached by an ordinary car but an SUV would be a better vehicle to tread the long zig-zag road, longer than the zig-zag roads leading to Baguio.
You will pass by the Pantabangan reservoir and two small dams the Canili and Diayo along the way. The trip is about 8 hrs drive from Manila. A little trivia. The province is named after the First Lady Doña Aurora Aragon Quezon.
