Travelers and passersby cannot turn their eyes away from the marvelous white rocks that wall the grand mountains while tracking the Pulangui Bridge that borders Quezon and Maramag. Below the white rock cliff is the wonderful, refreshing Blue Water Cave.

The approximately 45-meter high bridge is not just a transport infrastructure but also a rappelling site, added its nauseating height and raging waters of Pulangui River.
