The cool and clear water of the 20 km long Bulu River or as its also known as the Bolo River is the river that divides the Municipality of Pagudpud and that of Bangui. The river has its source up in the mountains near Adams, also well worth the visit as we recommend elsewhere in this website.
The Bulu River is absolutely perfect for those visitors wanting to have fun on white water and shoot the rapids in a kayak, or just go swimming in the refreshing waters. Trust me on a hot day those waters are just magic! Sometimes the waters run very fast and some kayak skill will be required to negotiate the white water rapids.
The section of the Bulu river in Barangay Dampig, Tarrag and also Poblacion 1 have a great many large boulders and also deep water that make it perfect for kayaking, but again you should known what you are doing so you stay safe.
You will have to bring your own kayaks to the Bulu River as there are no rental businesses in the area renting as far as we are able to determine. A tour organizer for this kind of activity may be contacted in Kalinga and Cagayan so best search online for these operators.
This Bulu River community is located to the north of Bangui and its now famous Bangui windmills and inland lies the monumental and daunting Cordillera Mountain Range, the largest mountain range in the Philippines. And over the other side of the mountain range lies the province of Cagayan. To the North and the West are the inviting warm waters of the South China Sea which is in stark contrast to the cool mountain river waters of the Bulu River.
