I have known that the Bugang River has been declared as the cleanest River in the Philippines. Every time, we travel north, we always pass by the river and marvel at the clean and almost bluish water. This is the first time that we have the time and most of all the camera to take pictures of this river. I have featured a shot of the river in my this Blog’s header.
The next photos were taken along the national highway (Zaldivar Bridge) where most of the pictures were taken.
The river empties into Pandan Bay. It has been raining for the past days but the river is still very clean without a trace of soil run off as seen in the other rivers in the province.
We are really scheduled to visit clients in Bgy Sto. Rosario but since there is still enough time, we decided to visit the Malumpati Resort and Spring…….there was no time ( and we are not properly attired) to trek to the Head Spring. This is the source of water for the Municipality of Pandan.
The water in the river looks like it is in a swimming pool. The next pictures show how clear and clean the waters is (clean only means here there are no debris, no soil run off etc).
These pictures were taken a it bit farther from the swimming area.
The Municipality of Pandan is promoting the Malumpati Spring and Bugang River as a tourist attraction and at the same time conserving the natural surrounding to preserve the area.
