BALANGA CITY, Bataan—Bagac Mayor Louise Gabriel del Rosario is enthusiastic to undertake a comprehensive expansion plan and to protect its three (3) medium-sized waterfalls situated in the thickly forested Bataan mountain ranges.
Del Rosario described the enormous tourism potential of the three waterfalls with abundant supply of crystal-clear waters which are now becoming popular to nature trekkers and picnickers in Central Luzon.
Two (2) waterfalls, namely Ambon and Limutan, both located some 10 kilometers away from the upland village of Binukawan, and another unexplored waterfall near the Bagac-Mariveles boundary, all have irresistible attractions for explorers and nature lovers who are expected to be fascinated by a rich variety of flora and fauna in the environmental friendly settings, Del Rosario said.
He explained the improvement of these waterfalls is part of the local government’s long-range environmental program of protecting watersheds that comprise Mount Bataan whose bigger portion is within the territorial scale of Bagac.
Del Rosario cited the Municipal Development Council has been reviewing the aspect of assessing and gathering proposals in addressing the issues like protection, conservation and management of prospective tourism spots for adventurers and environmentalists.
He urged upland residents and barangay officials near the three waterfalls to actively participate in the preservation and strictly cooperate in the tree planting program of the local government.
