MT. BUNGKOL BAKA

Bungkol Baka literally means “cow’s hump”. The mountain, which stands 540 meters above sea level, is named as such because it describes the mountain’s shape and suggests its importance as a grazing place for cattle. The mountain is within the homeland of the ethnic Abelling people, whom you will have a chance to interact with when you visit, since their men serve as guides and porters during treks.

DUGLO FALLS

On the way to Duglo Falls, several mini waterfalls in the middle of a forest, and an array of sounds from different bird species and from the rushing water of the river, may be heard. After an hour of river trekking, the 40-foot cascading waterfalls of Duglo shall greet you upon your entry into a mixture of limestone and greenery.

MT. TANGISAN

An imposing mountain standing just beside the Abelling community in Sitio San Pedro, Mt. Tangisan is the playground for both day-hikers and overnight climbers. Standing at 490 meters above sea level, this mountain destination is perfect for hiking and rappelling beginners.

MT. TMC-CAOAYAN

A mountain strangely set in the middle of rice fields and standing at roughly 590 meters above sea level, TMC-Caoayan’s name has been dedicated by Abelling tribal leaders to the Tarlac Mountaineering Club for their efforts in supporting basic education to the indigenous community.

What’s most challenging on this trail? After several river crossings, one may channel his inner tribesman on an ascent to banana tree-filled and hilly terrains, serving as doorways to the summit.

PANGASAAN FALLS

What makes the trek to Pangasaan Falls unique? It may well be the bird-watching activity!

While going on a trek along the Pangasaan River, you’ll be amazed at how rich San Jose is in natural aviation. When you reach the end of the trek, a stunning 20-foot twin falls with a wide pool will greet you for that much needed dip!

PANGASAAN DAM

The Pangasaan Dam is believed to be the main entry-point to Sitio San Pedro’s more well-known eco- adventure tourism destinations.

The gateway to mountains, waterfalls and a variety of flora and fauna starts off in the Pangasaan Dam, which also doubles as a loop for photographers and travellers looking for a scenic landscape
