    Lonely Bell

    by i-s-a Updated Jun 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was sad to know that one of the old bells of Nassiping went missing last year (October). The stolen bell was considered the male one...bigger than the one left behind. Due to this incident, every visitor to this Parish ruins is subjected to interviews and were asked to sign a log-book for their future reference.

    I hope the bell would be returned back in this place as it is part of their heritage.

    Horno Ruins

    by i-s-a Updated May 31, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the Spanish rule, the Horno in Tuguegarao provided the baked bricks for the Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, San Jacinto Chapel and all other important buildings of the place. We are so disappointed to find out that what could have been the pride and important heritage was left in a sad state. The horno was left in ruins and was enveloped by privately-owned houses. Some people even made the horno as their free garbage area :0(

    Trivia: Horno is the Sapnish term for oven.

    Bug Skin!

    by i-s-a Updated May 31, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This thing is quite unusual. While climbing the numerous steps of Callao cave, we saw this rather interesting beetle. It sure looks like the local "uwang" but this one has brown color. Gerric, upon seeing this, told us that it is not a live beetle but only the beetle's skin. Hmmm, this is the first time I saw this kind of stuff....aside from snake skin.

    it's a fake! :0)

    Portabaga Falls

    by monina_c Updated May 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This mini-waterfalls is a popular destination for locals from the surrounding communities of Portabaga. Families troop to this park to enjoy the cool waters of its 3 swimming pools and the karaoke machine available in every hut.

    The barangay of Portabago maintains the area and charges the visitors for use of the facilities. Since it is the local authorities who are in charge of maintenance, one cannot expect the area to be in top condition.

    swim in Callao River

    by itzypies Written Apr 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the reason why many visitors shy away in swimming in the river, most of the folks there are very superstitious...
    one of the urban legends.. we heard from the manongs and manangs that the river claims a life yearly..

    the river is very deep but the current its not that strong..

    for me everywhere, there is always an danger to folks who dont exercise caution..
    so go ahead take a plunge in this clean and cool Callao river..

    view from the top calm and peaceful me, myself and I d river is deep @ d sides & shallow in d middle babye!!

    Row your boat gently down the stream

    by asianbelle Updated Nov 26, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the foot of the mountain where Callao caves are located, is a river that locals claim could be crossed on foot during summer. However, during the rainy season, the water level rises that you have to take a boat.

    Some enterprising locals converted this simple task into a "business" venture and offer river boat cruise to visitors. It's unfortunate that I had limited time and was not able to try it.
