Discover Quirino’s off-the-beaten-path destinations on a full-day water adventure in the town of Maddela. If you’re a fan of subterranean caves and majestic waterfalls, then this guided day tour is what you’re looking for.
Your driver will pick you up at the meet-up place in Quirino and take you to the Governor’s Rapids. Forming a part of a tributary of the Cagayan River, the Governor’s Rapids got its name from the stories about a Japanese governor who unfortunately passed away in that same river during World War II. The river is now home to some of the people from Dumagat Tribe resides, making the place well-cared for.
Once you reach the drop-off point near the river, you will begin your water adventure. Feel free to try out boating or water tubing down the river. If you’re looking for a more exciting time here, you can also go for a quick caving trip as the rapids are also home to the Bisangal Cave. At the end of the cave is the stunning Bisangal Falls, nestled in a lush virgin forest.
From there, you will head to the Victoria Claredita Falls next, a tourist attraction located in Aglipay. Divided into five levels, the water here falls gracefully on lateral steep walls, making the bluish-green waterfall a picturesque image for its visitors. Make use of your time by swimming, cliff diving, or just relaxing by the shore.
You can take your lunch here before making your way to the Aglipay Caves. One of the reasons why the tourist spot is well-known in the province is because of its 37 chambers with fascinating stalagmites and stalactites. Take note that you have to climb, crawl, and spelunk down the abysmal depths of the cave before you catch a glimpse of the miniature version of Banaue Rice Terraces here. Enjoy posing in front of the limestone rock formations here before your driver brings you to the Pasalubong Center for some souvenir shopping to end your day.
