The Pagsanjan Falls

This tour takes you to the vast countryside southwards, passing through rice fields & coconut plantations until you reach the old town of Pagsanjan. From a riverside resort, transfer to a "banca" (a dugout canoe) for the trip to the falls: As your boatman starts rowing upstream, the wonders of nature unfolds before you. The sight of lush greety & towering cliffs above will thrill you endlessly. At the falls, you may opt to ride a bamboo raft that will take you underneath the waterfalls to experience the thunderous pounding of water coming down. Your return trip is another unforgettable & exciting experience as you "shoot the rapids"! Your boatman will skillfully maneuver the boat between the rocks & boulders until you reach the calm river of Pagsanjan. Lunch follows at a riverside lodge
