A small village known for its pleasant and serene environment is becoming popular to adventure seekers, sports and outdoor events enthusiasts since the Pugo Adventure or PUGAD facility were set up and continuously being improved to cater to the public.
PUGAD had its soft opening last September 18 with Department of Tourism regional directors Martin Valera of Region 1 and Purificacion Molintas of the Cordillera region, together with San Fernando City top councilor Alfred Ortega, gracing the occasion.
With three zip lines, your childhood dream to be flying high like a bird is for real. You can be like Superman flying over 200 meters above verdant rice fields, trees and a clean river that flows right at the heart of the village of Kagaling.
Fun and excitement do not end with the zip lines. Well-trained guides are available to assist guests in rappelling and wall climbing.
Guests need not to be professional drivers to try PUGAD’s all terrain vehicles for them to tour the premises of the facility which is nestled in a three-hectare land, which forms part to the peaceful barangay of Palina.
Trekking is also fun and a dip at the clean river is perfect for tired souls.
PUGAD also caters to team-building and to small-group activities while the cottages, function hall and main building are still under construction.
At present, facilities being offered are the nipa huts, two outdoor pools for adults and children, clean toilets and shower rooms.
PUGAD is located 300 meters from the Marcos Highway after a 30-minute drive from Baguio City or more than an hour-drive from San Fernando City, La Union. Coming from Manila, the place can be reached in four hours.
Guests from far areas may opt to stay at the Traveller’s Inn, the nearest accommodation facility some 750 meters from PUGAD. Free shuttle service will be available for guest from the inn to the adventure facility.
