Though Aneng River topographically flows between Barangays Banengbeng and Kamog, for this initial tourism venture, we are officially accessing it thru Barangay Kamog Sablan Benguet. Future tourism endeavors thru circuiting will lead us to work closely with Barangay Banengbeng as it has a lot to offer, too.
Just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit us, the BLGU already started receiving reservations for the water trek and swim activities in Aneng River but all of these had to be cancelled thereafter. Now, the municipality and the barangay decided to slowly open it to adventure enthusiasts. This site could.only accomodate moderately seasoned trekkers due to the downhill-uphill earthen-rocky footpath. However interested the guests may be, walk-in visit is not allowed. In the absence of full-time eco guides, your tour engagement can only be allowed on pre-scheduled basis in order for the host BLGU to schedule a community guide to lead and assist you. Registration should also be done at Kamog Barangay Hall with orientation as well. You may also inform this admin of your intention to visit the site but the same will still be conferred with the host BLGU authorities. A glimpse of the site ceremonial is shown in https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1202552257344668&id=100027697155165&mibextid=Nif5oz.
Downhill trek may take around 20-30 minutes with casual walk from Banao. Return uphill trek takes around 45-60 mins. River trekking depends on how long you spend on certain spots for water activities.
