An Impressive Sight
Quirino Province is a home of natural wonders, one of the wonders are the spectacular water falls in almost every town of the province.
Nantugao Falls surprisingly one of the most powerful and wondrous sight in the province. The 70 meter high falls located in Baguio Village In Diffun Quirino Province. The rock formation is likened a man in a sitting position, surrounded by lush forest, and fish sanctuary creek.
The trail begins in a hanging bridge, where participants get excited because of the beauty of the scenery.
Some part of the trail is gently sloped. Making some fun along the trail, for obvious difficulties of the trail, (Age is not the reason-LOL) where some are muddy and slippery.
The pressure in the body and in the feet is not a matter, where the trail provide to see and explore the beauty of nature.
Off-trail is the most challenging part of the adventure. This maybe daring for fellow travelers because non of them are mountaineer. The blend of full action and adventure for this kind of experience is worth to recount.
There are some pools and rapids along the river, but the most difficult part are the slippery and uneven rocks under the water. Special thanks to Barangay Captain of Baguio Village, sir Demacio who serve as our guide.
Trekking time is about an hour (Depend on pacing).
Difficulty varies from flat, smooth and slippery
The variety of trails is little bit technical, but manageable and memorable.
A call from a shady spot, saying come and sit down and take a rest.
The trail is rewarded of clean and refreshing scenery of running water-river. Stunning view and beautiful landscape.
A remote paradise in the midst of lush green grasses vegetation’s and tree’s. unspoiled by rural development.
Surprisingly, parts of this river is designated as breeding area for fresh water fish.
The latter part of the trail.
The most awaiting sight!
The sequence of cap-rocks made the Nantugao Water Falls awesome. this hard resistant rocks controls how many vertical drops that the falls have.
Imagining a long rivers flowing along its path, then there were a break then the water fell downward with strong force, then there’s a wonderful water falls.
The flowing water rapidly drops in high elevation. this is one of some natural wonders in our mother Earth.
Feel the cold water in the midst of stunning view a of rock formation and awesome landscape.
But….. don’t go too close – it’s very powerful!
Nothing beats of being close to nature.
The place provide a cold and clean air to breath. Peaceful haven. Peaceful beautiful restful place.
