Tourism potentials of Barlig raised in Senate
by Press release

The sleepy town of Barlig in Mountain Province deserves a second look.

In the Oct. 3 hearing of the Senate Committee on Tourism, lawyer Cyphrine Dalog, chief of staff of the Lone District of Mountain Province, said Barlig should be declared a tourism development area.

In her statement, Dalog referred to the explanatory note of House Bill 6584, which asserts that there a lot of potential tourist destinations in the country but have not been developed, such as Barlig, home of Mount Amuyao, the 10th highest mountain in the country.

She said Barlig also has natural wonders such as waterfalls, cool pristine lakes, hot springs, rock formations, majestic mountain ranges, rice terraces, burial caves, unique culture, and the most sought-after cool temperature during summer, which gives an unforgettable and distinctive experience to those who both love nature and culture.

If passed into law, tourism development areas shall be accorded priority development by the Department of Tourism while the tourism development plan of Barlig shall be incorporated in the national tourism development plan to be jointly implemented by the local government and the Provincial Tourism Council of Mountain Province.

The DOT, in coordination with the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority and other concerned agencies of the government, shall delineate defined geographic areas within the TDA and coordinate the integrated development of these areas for the optimum use of natural asset and attractions as well as existing facilities.

Dalog added that once the bill becomes a law, a tourism development trust fund shall likewise be created for purposes of financing projects that shall enhance tourism in Barlig.
