Bauko reopens tourist sites after lifting of red alert status
by Ofelia C. Empian

Visitors and guests can now plan their tourist activities in Bauko, Mountain Province after the Philippine National Police lifted the red alert status for the municipality after it was cleared of the presence of rebel armed groups.

Municipal Tourism Officer Arsenia Addon said the tourist sites that were declared off-limits to tourists due to series of gun battles between the government forces and the New Peoples Army in barangays Bagnen, Abatan, and Poblacion are now open to the public.

“The PNP has now lowered the red alert status to blue alert with the issuance of a certification,” Addon said.

Bauko Municipal Police Station Chief of Police, Capt. Joshua Belien Mateo, handed over the certification to the local government unit on May 6. 

“This is to certify that there are no monitored sightings of communist terrorists/NPAs nor reported NPA atrocities within the area of responsibility from April 13 to date,” the police certification reads.

As a result, the advisory issued by Mayor Abraham Akilit that ordered the closure of some tourism sites in the affected barangays has also been lifted.

Mount Polis, Cotcot Aso, Nentingli, Mount Kapuwaw, Spanish Trails, Mount Am-o, Toktok Allan, Layaan Burial Cave and Pangayapang Falls are now open to tourists.   

Meanwhile, the municipality of Hungduan, Ifugao through Mayor Hilario Bumangabang recently ordered the temporary closure of Mt. Napulawan and related tourist activities in the area.

The order was issued after the Municipal Peace and Order Council was informed of sightings of armed men in the municipality.

“A group of unknown people is roaming around the municipality. In order to protect and ensure the safety of everyone, tourism activities in Mount Napulawan will be temporarily closed effective immediately until further notice,” Bumangabang said.
