According to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources' Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau, the mountain has seven major waterfalls scores of minor cascades, an ancient art dating to be thousands of years old, a carpet of giant white anthurium, and a number of unexplored caves. Cabadbaran River, the city's main waterway, is emerging as tubing site with its rushing voluminous white-water whose entire stretch spans an adventure-packed course of more than an hour of fun-filled adrenaline-pumping ride.
