Take on the white waters of Pangi River. Appreciate the Pangi River aboard an inflated water tube that lets you cruise down all 1.6 kilometers of the river. Not in the mood to get wet? Alternatively, you can enjoy a pleasant riverside trek instead.
See the gentle cascades of the M’langen Falls. M’langen Falls is a stunning natural waterfall attraction in Tuanadatu, Maitum, Sarangani Province.
