This was taken in Ibulao River, Kiangan. Not many have rafted or even know of this river (I think) and as the photos on the slideshow below exhibits, it is a fantastic 3 hours of rafting experience with a view so impressive. An interesting place rich in history, Kiangan is believed to be the first human settlement in Ifugao. This is also where Ifugao and American troops helped force General Yamashita to make his informal surrender in World War II.
We stayed in a charming hostel owned by the Kalugdans, I remember the food to be superb. This was a special trip organized by Adventures and Expedition Philippines Inc. (AEPI) to explore the river. They have since run several trips running the upper portion of the river. Definitely worth a try.
This has been my entry to That’s My World. Go visit and find other worlds here.
Take either Autobus or Florida Bus Line to Banaue, get off at Kiangan.
