Bayugao Falls is a three-layered waterfalls located in Brgy. Turod in Luna, Apayao, just a few kilometers away from the Poblacion. The waterfalls is composed of six cascades and three decks of natural pools rising about 12 meters from each other. A fallen tree trunk in the second pool adds an accidental but a distinct character to Bayugao Falls. The second pool is the most apt for swimming at 10-meters deep.
Long gone was the time that when you hear about Apayao province, Kalinga will be the first to pop into your mind. Apayao, once part of the sole province of Kalinga-Apayao (now defunct), is making a name for itself. The local government of Apayao has been active during the past few years in promoting and exploring its hidden gems. According to the local dialect of the Isneg tribe, “apayao” means “negotiable river”. Branded as “Cordillera’s Last Frontier of Nature’s Richness,” you’ll discover that Apayao isn’t all just rivers.
