Chill lang! Gov Dayanghirang claims Aliwagwag Falls still safe despite rebel attack
Davao Oriental Governor Nelson Dayanghirang said Aliwagway Falls in Cateel town remains safe for tourists despite the alleged attack of communist rebels at the military encampment protecting the area earlier this month.
The politiko said that the Aliwagwag Falls Eco Park continues to draw numerous foreign and local tourists, thus boosting the province’s economy.
“There is no doubt the ecotourism destinations in Davao Oriental would continue to attract local and foreign visitors,” the Davao Oriental governor reckoned.
“Davao Oriental has become the new beehive of tourism activities (in the region). Tourists now come in droves to see the impressive coastal scenery, particularly its awesome and serene beaches and islands,” he said.
The politiko also clarified that it was not the actual Aliwagwag Park that was attacked by the rebels but the base camp of the troops guarding the park.
