If you think crossing a hanging bridge is heart-stopping enough, try one whose maximum capacity is yet to be found out. Since being built last year, Kelbat Hanging Footbridge has played a big role in the daily lives of the residents around Nabuangan River. Hence, despite being constructed only a couple of years ago, the fragile-looking overpass can easily pass off as an antiquated structure. After crossing the bridge, visitors can head to the banks of Nabuangan River and swim in its cool waters, where cottages suited for picnics and gatherings can be used for free.
The artifacts displayed in this classroom-turned-museum are a combination of donations from nearby communities and Sir Allen Mayodong's personal collection. The Humanities and English professor began gathering items of historical and cultural importance from the Isnag and Ifugao tribes in 2003. Baskets, kitchen tools and equipment, and national costumes are just some of the invaluable items on display. Entrance to the museum is free, but Sir Mayodong must be informed before visiting. Interested parties can contact him through his mobile number +63 906 743 6611.
Purag River is an emerging tourist destination located in Apayao’s fruit capital, the humble town of Conner. Families would often be seen feasting on a sumptuous spread of igat (eel) and wild duck dishes at the rocks by the riverbank. The blue-green lagoon, which can go as deep as 30 feet, conceals a number of caves behind its small cascades, which are often frequented by individuals and couples yearning for alone time.
