Discovery of underground river in Oro goes viral

BY JOEL C. ESCOL, Managing Editor

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The recent discovery of an underground river in one of the remote barangays in this city went viral as local vlogger showed a short video of the site.

Clyd Vlog, one of the popular vloggers in the city showed video footage of the river and it immediately attracted the attention of many netizens. 

As of this writing the vlog has already gathered almost 1 million views and several thousands of comments from all over the country.

Many of the netizens and nature lovers have expressed their appreciation for this so-called untouched gem of the city. Not even the barangay chairman of Pagalungan, where this underground river could be found, showed interest in this new discovery.

Clyd Vlog in his blog said the Barangay officials of Pagalungan should have shown interest to promote this hidden wonder of the City, like what officials did in Puerto Princesa Palawan.

“This is a big boost to the barangay officials and this is a very potential tourism attraction from all the Philippines,” the vlogger said, adding that this is one of the best places he visited.

RA 9072

Roberto Plaza, one of those who watched the video commented that based on Republic Act 9072, otherwise known as the Cave Act, anyone who wishes to enter a cave must coordinate with the barangay, tourism office and CENRO-DENR. 

Plaza said citing RA 9072, all people who want to enter a cave should undergo “cave orientation” about the do’s and don’ts for their own safety.

“No one should even enter a cave without wearing a skull guard, helmet with a head lump or through a trained cave guide. “Please coordinate to the right government agency before posting any videos prior to the government’s cave assessment,” he said.
