Pulang Tubig, Pulang Bato River Trek:The Red River Valley

The Red River Valley or the Pulang Tubig, Pulang Bato, Valencia, Negros Oriental. March 20,2011, a group of 9 outdoor enthusiasts, set for another nature adventure, to trek the rivers of Pulang Bato-Pulang Tubig.

We've passed through several hot springs, sulfur vents, falls and more falls! A little of climbing over rocks, braved the strong currents and at times you just have to slip away and the package is complete!

Indeed, it is a sure way of relieving yourself from the stress of life or work, nature is always there waiting for you to discover.This river trek certainly adds to another lifetime of memories to behold!

Negros continues to amaze me!
