"This was an another off-beaten journey using a scooter and together with my bro, we were able to explore the untold and unknown places and hidden wonders of the Philippines and right now, our ultra-active scooter landed in the town of Suyo, Ilocos Sur.  "

The mountain view keeps my eyes wide open into surprises and the addition to this is the river that is trying to cope up with the drought of summer. The river called Paduquit River or some call it Paduguit (variant) in Suyo, Ilocos Sur is struggling to unleash it's beauty in spite of the thirst it has to handle.

The Paduquit River is almost dry thus exposing the whitish riverbed
Well, it did not bother me so because being my first time to see this, I have no previous images stored in my brain's memory to compare with. 

Meaning, I saw it as it is without any reservations and the exposed whitish riverbed was just a fascinating feature with the clear and emerald green water.

Paduquit River is streaming with an average elevation of 81 meters above sea level. However, although I was able to see this river without a huge volume flow, there is a low occurrence of extreme drought and flooding chances is extremely high. [1]

The emerald green waters of the river flows in between the lush green mountains that is truly very close to nature. The area is in the same way surrounded by mountains with very few houses, concrete structures and almost no vehicles at all.

Some houses situated near the river are just especially made as a shelter for farmers who manage fertile farmlands near the river and in maintaining some aqua industries.


Suyo is in fact a very wide town with scarce population. So the natural wonders here are less altered, somehow. Although the river might look dry and thirsty, it was still beautiful and the riverbed which is made up of white-washed stones was always fascinating.

The color of the riverbed blends into a harmony with the green lush mountains with a healthy vegetation that keep being green due to a river that provides the trees an essential basic need for their survival - the fresh highland stream.

This was an another off-beaten journey using a scooter and together with my bro, we were able to explore the untold and unknown places and hidden wonders of the Philippines and right now, our ultra-active scooter landed in the town of Suyo, Ilocos Sur. /end
