Kanlawig Hot Spring - Compostela Valley

As a part of our Compostela Valley tour last April 2011, Kanlawig Hot Spring is our last destination in the said province. We headed first in Tagbibinta Falls then Marangig Falls and lastly proceed to our next destination in Kanlawig Hot Spring. It is just along the road going to poblacion proper. The location was great with a wide plain in its background as well as the mighty Mount Candalaga.

Having Kanlawig Hot Spring as your last spot to visit before going home is really a relaxing feeling. You can relax your tired body after trekking such majestic falls. The warmth of water is just mild and soothing to skin.

Marangig Falls - Mount Candalaga, Maragusan, Compostela Valley

Marangig Falls serves as an entry to climbing Mount Candalaga. It is a system of waterfalls consisting of 13 levels surrounded by trees and different shrubs.

According to legend, Marangig Falls is home to a ship known as Donya Marangig. Once in a while, residents would hear the blow of the horn and see that the river's waters have overflown. The shifting of the water, according to the locals, means that the ship is moving but the ship is invisible.

The province is one of the untapped natural gems of the country. Its thick, undisturbed forest serves as home to numerous endemic and endangered flora and fauna. These include the Rafflesia, the world’s biggest flower. Aside from this, Compostela Valley has several scenic spots waiting to be ‘discovered’ for the world to see.
