Shooting the Rapids to Pagsanjan Falls
One of my favorite segments of ABS-CBN “Tara , Grets!” by Gretchen Fullido traveled to Pagsanjan, Laguna some time in April, 2015 to experience its famous waterfalls. On the following video you can watch her exciting adventure and you will have an idea what is called “shooting the rapids”.
Shooting the Rapids is the famous attraction when you visit Pagsanjan, the tourist capital of Laguna. You can reach our famous town about 2-3 hours travel if you’re from Manila.
