Badian Mayor Carmencita Lumain released an Executive Order (EO) No. 09, Series of 2020, directing all canyoneering services to cease their operations until further notice.

“Badian, being a hub for tourism, has its doors open to tourists and travellers and there is a need to take extra precaution with regards to incoming visitors like foreigners especially those with record of previous trips from China, and special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau or anyone might be a COVID-19 carrier,” Lumain’s EO read.

Kawasan Falls has been a growing tourist attraction, especially with canyoneering tours and other water-themed outdoor activities.

Downstream, the water coming from the three-layered falls flows to the Matutinao River, and traversing across a secluded canyon where canyoneering activities usually take place. /bmjo
