The Gentle Giants of Donsol

November 20, 2011 Mango Tours 0 Comments

Donsol is a small fishing town in Sorsogon situated in the southwest part of Luzon. A humble town and a home to sea giants whale sharks locally known as “Butanding”. Nestled 600 kilometers away from Manila, Donsol is accessible either by air and/or land transportation. 

 

Whale sharks are known to be the largest fish in the world. They grow up to 60 ft. and weigh up to 15 tons.  Unlike other whales that are mammals, these gentle giants belong to the family of sharks. Surprisingly, unlike most of the sharks found in sea, whale sharks only feed on planktons, that’s why they are sometimes referred to as giant vegetarian fishes. Also, what makes these creatures more interesting is their friendly nature.



Whale sharks like warm waters. In a tropical country like the Philippines, it’s no wonder they swim and stay in its waters yearly. In Donsol, the arrival season of whale sharks starts from February to May. This is the ideal time for these friendly sharks to swim in the warm seawaters of Donsol where planktons are bountiful.


These giants are considered to be one of the friendliest among other creatures in the deep sea. Divers can actually swim near them without them getting in danger.
Conservation of these friendly sharks is strongly supported by the Philippine Government to defend these whale sharks from exploitation.This will allow future generations to see them.

Daycation Destinations - Laguna

November 17, 2011 Mango Tours 0 Comments


PAGSANJAN FALLS

    Located 92 kilometers south of Manila is a 318-foot (97 meters) waterfall whose enchanting beauty fascinates tourists from all corners of the globe.  Magdapio Falls or most commonly known as Pagsanjan Falls is considered to be one of the famous waterfalls in the Philippines. The waterfall is actually situated within the boundaries of Cavinti but access by a boat originates from the town of Pagsanjan, hence the name.


The falls can be reached through a two-hour (17 kilometers) river trip by riding a dug-out canoe which is an locally known as shooting the rapids.  This is the highlight of any visit to Pagsanjan. The trip begins with a smooth and quiet ride to the river that skirts the town; then the ride quickens as the boat reaches the rapids through the verdant tropical gorge.


You will surely be amazed on how the two skilled and accredited boatmen strategically positioned at the end of the banca hop from one side to the other running over boulders or cliff walls as they swiftly guide the boat through the narrow passages of the gorge.  The trip passes through a total of 16 rapids with over hundred feet high gorges.


After an exciting adventure ride, the falls is a sight to behold. On board a bamboo raft, you can surely feel refreshed and calmed with its cold and clear waters splashing unto your body as the raft takes you right under the falls. Relax as you listen to the soothing sound of falling water inside a cave just behind the falls.

This is truly one humbling experience, as you witness the handiwork of nature for more than a hundred years.


Tour Inclusions:
·       Roundtrip Transfers
·      Sightseeing tour en route to Pagsajan, Laguna
·      Lunch
·      Pagsanjan Activities (inclusive of: entrance fee, boat ride, life jacket, cushion, helmet, use of towel, Cavinti entrance and raft ride to the first falls)

Note: Rates apply for a minimum of four (4) persons and above. Prices are subject to change without prior notice and are valid until March 31, 2011.
