It was my first time to visit Kalinga Province. My second time to try Whitewater Rafting and I’m elated to be doing this in the mighty Chico River. When I saw Whitewater Rafting in Chico River in the itinerary I was excited. I remembered my experience in CDO when I did The Ride of My Year. Good times!
So the day came and we are on our way to the jump-off. But before that a scenic road coming from Tuguegarao City via Tabuk City on board a jeepney to Pasil. I can’t help but climb to the top for an awesome view.
When we arrived at the starting area, we were given a short lecture on proper use of the paddle and things to remember on the water. We should always remember: Safety First!
So it was time to paddle. There are 3 important commands you need to remember: Forward, Paddle Back and Stop. Always listen to your guide and don’t forget to high-five after that rough rapids.
Now I have to tell you the experience right? Now, Im at a lost of words. So maybe the photos below can speak for themselves:
We are about to go through a big and difficult rapid.
Ed: *looks at me with an evil grin*
James: *knew what Ed was thinking*
Angel: *no idea of what’s happening*
Big rapid coming…. Angel about to fall to the water…
Ed: *looks at me again, evil grin again*
James: *about to help Angel*
Ed: *cues something*
Angel falls to the water
Ed: *evil laughs*
hahahaha! It was so much fun to see Angel. Do note too that this happened not once but twice. Pure entertainment.
Watch that scene from the video below:
