The Apayao Provincial Capitol is where the governor and his constituents perform their duties and responsibilities. It sits on a hill that overlooks a small man-made park. During afternoons, residents of all ages can be seen hanging around and relaxing under the surrounding trees. A few can also be seen playing basketball in the newly constructed gymnasium just a few minutes away from the Capitol. At times of calamity, this gym is the town's designated evacuation center.
Shooting the rapids is a common attraction all over the country, but have you ever tried it inside a cave? Travelers who want to try out this extreme activity are accompanied by a couple of boatmen wherein one steers through narrow crevices with a single blade paddle while the other holds on to the stern to keep the boat balanced. The river spans 700m of a crystal-clear water in Marag Valley. On a good day, various species of fish can be sighted swimming along such as tilapia, carp, eel, and palilang. The water level depends on the weather conditions—it can rise as high as 30 to 40 feet during heavy rains and storms, which explains the presence of lodged trunks and branches at the cave's ceiling.
Nagan River was recognized as the region's cleanest body of water for 3 consecutive years, starting in 1998. It flows to the town of Lydia in Lower Maton. Locals can often be seen bathing, rafting, and doing their laundry by the cool river, where various species of fish such as eel, tilapia, and carp also thrive.
