2 Hours Away from
the smog and noise of Metro Manila, there is a raftable river where
paddlers can experience world-class scenery and rapids for over 40 kilometers.
The recent commencement of regular rafting tours on this Quezon Province
river allows interested rafters or kayakers to enjoy a true wilderness
experience without having to travel very far from Manila. This river
offers several trips; a 2 day trip begins with some wild rapids, including
what is probably the highest commercially rafted waterfall in South
East Asia (15 feet, can be easily portaged in high water or if guests
want a more relaxing river experience). After about 10 kms. the river
calms down significantly, allowing guests to soak in the breathing scenery.
Overnight is camping in one of the many beaches the river offers.
