More road networks to be built to connect Apayao’s tour sites
by Ofelia C. Empian

The opening of various road networks in Apayao has helped in the promotion of the various tourism sites in the province that’s why more roads are expected to be connected in the coming years.

Apayao Rep. Eleanor Bulut-Begtang said plans are on the pipeline to connect more municipalities with one another, particularly of the Marag Valley in Luna, which is the growing tourism destination in the province.

She said aside from its natural sites, Marag Valley is also an agricultural area that’s why farm-to-market roads are essential in the area as well.

She said the concreting of the road going to Cabugao-Calanasan-Claveria, Cagayan is also ongoing.

Provincial Tourism Officer Rebecca Tamaken-Mamba said the tourism destinations of Apayao were made accessible to the public through the road convergence project by the Department of Tourism and the Department of Works and Highways, which was implemented in 2012. 

The project was implemented to connect roads going to tourism destinations to the main roads for easier access to these sites. 

“We didn’t have good roads before so we used military trucks to get to Marag Valley during evaluations,” Mamba said.

With improved roads, the province took their chance in bidding for its hosting of the Cordillera Administrative Region Athletic Association meet in 2013, which they successfully staged then repeated it as the host of this year’s regional sports meet. 

The road convergence was again funded in 2015, wherein P200 million was infused for the concreting of roads going to Marag Valley and Lussok Cave, also in Luna.  

The concreting of the Apayao-Ilocos Norte Road, which traverses the municipalities of Kabugao and Calanasan in Apayao and Solsona, Ilocos Norte is also ongoing.

“We are inching forward with our tourism industry,” Mamba said, adding that they are also preparing the community for the influx of tourists in the province.
