Among many places worth visiting one is Abra Tugot ni Angalo

Abra (Ilokano: Probinsia ti Abra; Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Abra) is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Bangued, and is bordered by Ilocos Norte on the northwest, Apayao on the northeast, Kalinga on the mid-east, Mountain Province on the southeast, and Ilocos Sur on the southwest.

Abra for a long time had been a blank spot on the Philippine tourism map. It is often skipped due to news of killings and partly because of its location in North Luzon. It is sandwiched between two very popular tourist destinations - Ilocos in the west and the Cordilleras in the east. But now Abra is becoming one of the best tourist destinations with huge arrays to choose from, old churches, long bridges, mountain ranges, magnificent waterfalls, food and a lot more.  


TUGOT NI ANGALO is found in Kabaruyan, San Quintin. The "footprint" is a perpetual monument of Angalo. According to ancient local myth, the first man to have ever been created in the world set foot in Abra and this is perpetualized by a large monument of a footprint in the area. People claim that Angalo, the Abran version of Adam in the Bible’s Story of Creation, is a giant with a footprint stretching up to 15 meters long, 5 meters wide and 10 feet deep. The rock formation leading to the top of the falls reveals the best-kept naturally-made pools.

On a clear day, TUGOT NI ANGALO can be seen visibly even from a distance.

Here are some pictures of The TUGOT NI ANGALO:
