Christmas Ed Kapangan (December 14-15) To Feature Hiking, Spelunking, Rappelling, And Overnight Camping

The town of Kapangan will be staging another edition of their annual Christmas Ed Kapangan invitational event this coming December 14 and 15. Organized by the town's tourism office, the event aims to introduce more people to the various tourist destinations within the town.

The two-day affair will feature outdoor activities such as hiking, spelunking, swimming, rappelling and night camping. Participants will get the chance to visit tourist destinations which include the Taba-ao View Deck, the Obellan Catampan Rice Terraces, Longog Cave, Amburayan River, Dangwa Cave, Bulalacao Cave, and Badi Falls.

Participants will stay in Kapangan for the two-day event. They will spend the night at a camp in barangay Sagubo. The overnight camp will feature a cultural show, bonfire, and jamming. On the second day, participants will enjoy a trek to Badi Falls, arguably the town's most well-known tourist destination.
