Discover the best places to visit like Abra Tagpew Falls

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.  

Enchanting TAGPEW FALLS is located in a hidden Valley of Tubo, Abra. It is more than 100 meters tall, making it one of the highest falls in Abra. 

TAGPEW FALLS is also accessible from Sagada, Mountain Province. When going to TAGPEW FALLS, one has to climb up and down - twice!

To date, only a few locals and hunters glimpsed of the falls’ pristine beauty. The "Tagpew/Tagpao" in the local dialect, refers to a woman’s organ of copulation. According to the locals, the rock formation at the base of the waterfall resembles the shape of the said woman’s organ.
