Thanks God it's Sunday! Sette was invited by the Mayor of Pangil Laguna, Hon. Manzana to visit and see the new "Paguil River Eco - Park" and the "Ambon-Ambon Falls" as the main highlight of the Park.
Mr. Diaz is one of the in charge in the development of Panguil River Eco-Park He said that they are planning to add Water tubing beside the trekking to Biak na bato and Ambon-Ambon Falls. Water tubing is a free-floating tubing, the tube riders are untethered and often conveyed by the current of a waterway. As in all watersports tubers should wear appropriate safety gear such as life vests,protective water shoes such as Keens, and helmets.
Now you can enjoy and see the Ambon Ambon falls but the water tubing is not yet ready, Entrance fee for the trek is very affordable around 60 pesos per person and it includes a tour guide going to the falls.
According to the history Pangil was founded in 1579 by two Franciscan missionaries. The town's name is believed to have come from three coincidental circumstances: One historical version was that it was named after the fang of a wild boar called "Pangil" in the vernacular.
Another version accounts to the first native inhabitants of the place called "Pangilagan"; and the third version relates about the place being once dominated by the first pre-Spanish chieftain named Gat Pangil.
If you are a nature lover this is a nice and great place to visit, trekking to the falls is around 30 minutes. Recommended!
