water was flowing hard when we reached the river seen along the way to Dingalan. from the ground, you can see how strong the waters force was causing the rapids.this is Dupinga river in Gabaldon which is still part of Nueva Ecija. this is just few kilometers after crossing the hills of Laur. this river can be viewed along the highway making it a popular stopover.the continuous rain days before our visit caused the river to reach a certain level that caused some of the existing cottages to be partly inundated.there were still a number of people trying their best to find a location that they can best have a picnic since it was a Sunday when we were there. but it was not safe to go to the middle area as water was really flowing fast.the raging waters on this area also means that we won't be able to visit the waterfalls which was on our itinerary. but it was also the rapids that made it quite an exciting scene to capture the flowing waters.don't miss out Lawstude's tandem post on Dupinga river here. you'll enjoy his photos upclose the rapids.
