Governor's Rapids is among the unsung natural attractions at the town of Maddela, Province of Quirino. While it's true that the province is yet to claim a spot in the wanderer's map, Quirino promises to be a potential adventure hotspot in the northern corner of the map.

As a quirinian myself, I was astonished not to have heard much of this place before. From afar, it looks like a wounded mountain with a long eye-like slit in the center. This naturally carved viewing deck is reachable through a short boat ride on the still and mystic bluish waters of the river. Inside is like the irony of strength and vulnerability as you get to see the beauty of the rolling mountains through the rough eyes of this rock formation. With another 5-minute sail, you can also reach the cave that houses a mini waterfall inside. It's a gash towards a gush of fresh and cool water to ease a pretty challenging trek.

It may have been a cliche saying that there is no place like home but more often than not, it is true. I've been to a number of destinations across the Philippines but Governor's Rapids holds a certain charm that nips a portion close to my heart128522
