CALBAYOG CITY – Samar
First District Engineering programmed P50 Million for the construction
of access road to one of the famous waterfalls in Calbayog City.
Cong. Mel Senen S. Sarmiento
said that the amount will be used to construct a concrete access road
going to Bangon Falls, one of the most well-known waterfalls of this
city, but remain unexplored by tourists due to road difficulty.
According to DE Eduarte, the construction of more than three
kilometers access road is expected to start next year.
The development of access
road to Bangon Falls is under the Eastern Visayas Tourism Roadmap of
the Department of Tourism. Bangon Falls as one of the more than 20
waterfalls of Calbayog is located at Brgy. Tinaplacan which is three
kilometers away from the highway which at present can be reached
through a “habal-habal”.
Once the access road is
implemented, tourist activities in the area will develop. The Tourism
Roadmap envisions to heighten the competitiveness of the region as
alternative tourist destination.
