Nature is full of wonders. One way to enjoy nature is to go river trekking. In the Philippines, rivers are abundant. Lush rainforests hide a plethora of pristine waterways that host a wide variety of flora and fauna. We can access these amazing elements of nature by trekking through rivers.
How to do it? Simply find a river or stream that is shallow enough to cross on foot. Grab your gear and head up river. Most rivers flow from higher locations to lower, eventually merging with the ocean. By heading up the river, you will notice the terrain becoming harder to climb. Once it is too tough to go further, you can find a spot to set up camp, do some fishing, play in the water, or cook lunch.
What you need: The most important thing you will need when going river trekking is your waterproof bag. Waterproof bags are generally made of a canvass-type material that prevents water from seeping into it. Waterproof bags, sometimes called “dry bags” have a foldable opening at the top where you can latch it close. Once it's water-tight, rest assure your belongings inside will be safe.
Want something fast and thrilling? Go kayaking! Kayaks are basically canoes that you can take out to the open ocean or down a river. These simple boats allow you to enjoy water sports at any speed you want. If you kayak in a quiet lake, you will be able to take your time with each row you make. Thinking of something fast-paced? Kayak down a fast flowing river and feel the adrenaline rush.
Kayaks and canoes come in two main sizes. The first one sits one person, the second category sits two people. These speed machines are streamlined to take a beating in water. Shaped to cut through speeding water.
