DILAPA FALLS    |  DILAPA RIVER, QUEZON, BUKIDNON - Last January 14, 2011, we were on our way home from task force appraisal and field inspection when we have seen this falls at the Dilapa River in Barangay Dilapa, Quezon, Bukidnon. I have already seen this falls many times every time I passed by this bridge by bus. This time we were fortunate that we were able to use the company's vehicle and stopped for awhile to take pictures. 

I was not able to ask on what is the name of this falls but since the name of the bridge were named after the place, usually and most commonly in my own observation, once a bridge is constructed to connect two (2) banks to become passable, the one of the options to tag is  after the name of a river or creek where this structure is installed, except in highly urbanized areas where more than 1 bridge are constructed. Like in Baguic-ican River in Pangantucan, Bukidnon, that bridge was named after the name of the river---Baguic-ican Bridge. In Malaybalay City, the bridge in Impalambong that crosses the Sawaga River was named after this river---Sawaga Bridge. Another bridge in Malaybalay City just 500 meters away from Sawaga Bridge, the Mamala Bridge---was named after the name of the creek, the Mamala Creek.

The Kulasihan River, the bridge was named as Kulasihan Bridge. In Valencia City, the Panlibatuhan Creek, it was named after the name of the creek--Panlibatuhan Bridge.

Creeks, rivers and other water streams are tributaries of our water sheds, and shall be connected to the NIA Canals that supply water to our production areas such as paddy fields. Thus, Dilapa River was identified by the NAMRIA, as one of water resources in the Philippines used for Irrigation System.

 The National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) surveys and maps the land and water resources of the Philippines. One of  their major mandates is to provide both the public and private sectors with map making services as well as geographic and resource information.
 This falls is also ideal for an outdoor adventure like zip lines.

  2. hi claire. Yeah, you are right claire. It is a good stop over to unleash your boredom on road travel. Just be careful with the buses/vehicles that rushing up along the highway, its too dangerous.:-).
