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.
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.
Gololan Falls is a breathtaking 33m-high cascade that comes with its own rainbow, thanks to the surrounding boulders that trap sunlight at the bottom. The falls can be reached after a grueling 30 to 45-minute downhill trek. The name comes from an old folk tale concerning a kiwat (eel) and an aguning (a fish related to the tilapia). The story goes that both wanted to climb the falls, a task only the iwat can accomplish. The aguning, left behind, cried out "Magol-olol" several times, which roughly translates to "Help, I'm stuck." Thus, the waterfall was named Golgolan.
