Excerpt from 10 Wild Philippine Adventures by Lei Chavez, InFlight August-September 2011
“Peñablanca, Cagayan: Caving and Spelunking in Callao Cave
Head off to the town of Peñablanca and climb the 200 steps that lead to the massive limestone formations that house the famed seven-chambered Callao caves. You can also reach the caves by boat along Mororan River, which passes through lush rainforest and steep cliffs. Other caves for exploration include the San Carlos cave and Jackpot cave.”
“Tuguegarao, Cagayan: Kayaking in Tuguegarao
A wild two-day trip sees you kayaking the rapids of Pinacanauan River on the first day and rafting the Chico River on the second. Wonderful scenery of mountainous canyons, gorges, rock formations, and waterfalls, as well as flights of bats. Opt for the rough trip and camp out along the banks.”
