After the long, but rewarding trekking along Tinipak River, River Crossing is the next activity of the day.

River Crossing should be a trilling  experience as a part of any backpacking adventure.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADuring rainy days, this  adventure is more intense.

But during summer the water in this part of Tinipak Riveris swallow, just above the ankle or below knees where  adventure is something less.

The  purpose of river crossing is to reach Balete Cave. 

 

River Crossing can be dangerous without the guidance of the trained  professional.

Preparation
