Sablan town is potential adventure tourism spot
by Jimmy Laking

The fruit-growing municipality of Sablan, unknown to many, has its share of natural wonders that if fully developed can bring in both local and foreign tourists.

Board member Marciano Inso Sr., said that foremost in the list is the Towing Falls in Barangay Poblacion below which several layers of swimming pool can be built.

“The water is cool and invigorating as it comes from the surrounding mountains,” he said.

He said Mt. Mungo in Barangay Baneng-beng can be an alternative mountain-hiking destination. “As the tallest mountain in that part of Benguet, it has a commanding view of the beaches of La Union and the neighboring communities in La Trinidad and Kapangan.”

Residents say the mountain is also the first to receive sunlight in the area and old folks say mysterious lights used to be seen on the mountain at night.

The board member said the municipality is also an ideal spot for rock climbing, singling out portions of the Naguilian Road where the rock face can stretch to 100 meters or even longer.

He said that in Barangay Bayabas itself, kayaking can be introduced along the Mangi River all the way to the Galiano River in the neighboring town of Tuba.

“The place has been scouted several times by those familiar with kayaking and they say the course and flow of the river is perfect for such a sporting activity,” he said.

“The proposed kayaking site stretches from three to five kilometers so if there is such a thing as short-distance kayaking, this site could be the one,” he added.

Inso said that when in season, kayakers can partake of the local fruits like bananas and pineapples that are savored for their distinct taste and sweetness.

A fifth-class municipality, Sablan is a purely agricultural town that relies heavily on its internal revenue allotment to sustain governance and basic services.

It has a population of 9,652 people as of the 2000 census, spread out in its eight barangays.
