What to explore at Babuyan River?

This Babuyan river trip can be enhanced by a good picnic lunch under a giant tree. It takes less than an hour to travel up stream and see the various wildlife and forest. It has some traffic as the local population uses this water way for their trade. On the way, you can see the huge 150 year old ipil tree called the "mother" tree. Since over logging there are very few mature hard wood forests. From the tree you can go back past the launch site on the highway and out to the sea. This is a large coastal sea way for this island and up stream a micro hydro plant is being installed to help with the poor electrical supply island wide.
