There are geological land escape surrounded in the Rock Formation, that added beauty to the place.

Bimmapor sits in the river bank of Siitan River. This is also used as jump-off for river cruising.
Siitan River is a head water of Cagayan River, Awarded as Hall of Fame for Cleanness Inland Bodies of Water in the Philippines.
From the rock formation, visitors transfer to another boat, to start river cruising.
This part of the river is commonly skip by some of the visitors, instead they walk and ride the boat after the rapids. Boating in a raging rapids using an ordinary wooden boat is another firsts to our experience.
White water rafting usually used rubber boat, when colliding with big rocks it remain safe, collision also added more fun. Boating in a raging rapids using an ordinary wooden boat is another firsts to our experience. The strong rapids of the water literally rattled our body. LOL
After the two rapids, the river is extra-ordinary calm.
A place of pristine silence, features a breathtaking view in spectacular limestone wall decorated beautifully by green trees and grasses
A heaven of rocks formation, sculptured by nature itself, crystal clear green water, unspoiled by rural development, super incredible and spectacular.
A remote paradise in the midst of towering mountains. A breath taking scene.
Best place for eco-tourism destination, where a system of cave along the river are identified.
River cruising is not part of our itinerary created by PH First Continuing the whole river adventure added another hours in our stay in place, where other activities of the day may suffers.
Going back is a sacrifice for the Bogador (boat man), paddling against the flow of the river is strenuous , they get down and push the boat to bring back the visitors in the river bank.
Boat rate is 750.00 good for 4-5 person, until the Siitan River. The complete river cruising reaches until Dipantan, (boundary of Quirino and Aurora Province ) boat rate PHP 1,500.00 still good to 4-5 persons, where down steam promises more beautiful scenery, picnic area, bridge connecting the province of Quirino and province of Aurora, and many more.
