Tublay readies Bayokbok Falls as new tourism site
by Ofelia C. Empian

TUBLAY, Benguet – Another beauty will add to the list of sites to see in this municipality as the local government unit is currently preparing for the launching of Bayokbok Falls as a destination.

Municipal Tourism Action Officer Enrique Moresto said the falls is now undergoing assessment from the LGU and the Provincial Tourism Office. The pristine Bayokbok Falls is located at Barangay Tuel.

“Before inviting tourists to visit this potential tourist spot, we have to see to it that everything is ironed out first to protect the area and the tourists as well,” Moresto said.  

He said they are organizing and equipping the community, especially the tour guides for the influx of tourists.

They are also putting in place a system on tour guiding, community relations with the tourists, and waste management.

He said the tour guides will be undergoing trainings to be conducted by the Provincial Tourism Office.  

The town has trained tour guides mostly coming from Barangay Ambongdolan where Tublay’s foremost cave attractions of Bengaongao and Paterno are found.

“This will be a new addition to our caves and boulder tourism sites,” he said.

Moresto said the Bayokbok Falls was first evaluated by the LGU during a clean and green contest in 2012. It was eventually declared as the “cleanest body of water” in Tublay.

“It was the initiative of the barangay for the falls to be assessed as a tourism site,” he said.

Taking cue from the fluorishing tourism industry of Barangay Ambongdolan, many barangays are now requesting for assessment of their tourist sites.

Provincial Tourism Officer Clarita Prudencio, meanwhile, said they are now validating various tourism sites in the province aside from Tublay.

Prudencio recognized that most of the tourism spots in the province are natural sites, which needs further evaluation and community preparation due to its sensitivity, unlike manmade sites.

“We take our time in evaluating our tourism sites that are mostly nature-based,” she said adding that the community must be trained on effective community service along with identifying facilities that they can offer to tourists.
