Tineg and Abra River of Abra

by - Monday, August 01, 2016

If you go deeper into Abra’s attractions you’ll learn that they offer a number of list and really a day trip is not enough to visit all.

When we visit Tugot ni Angalo at San Quintin I notice that the road we’ve taken are full of pebbles esp the part near the river. Out of curiosity, I asked the driver if this certain spot that we are walking right now used to be some form of body water before and he actually said yes. He told us that during this month (March) some of their body of water like river, falls, and the like dried up.

Amaze on what I am seeing before the foot prints of Angalo, again, I asked the driver what is this river before us. According to him, it is the Tineg River. As per some research some call it the Abra River. But as I go deeper into my research, it is said to be a tributary of Abra River. Regardless, both offers a great view with a mountains on its background.

During our visit, some of the locals were swimming on the river, and some tourists make their way near it with their cars and do some dipping in the river too. There are some cottages near the river if you want to take a rest and just enjoy the view.

There is more to Abra than Tugot Ni Angalo, Tangadan Tunnel, Bangued Cathedral, Abra River, and Tineg River. Too bad, that it’s the dry season when we visit that we missed to see a falls from their province, where they have a number of falls to choose from.

How to get there: At Abra, asked a driver of tricycle or jeepney to get you to San Quintin.
