Top 5 Rapids in the Philippines for Tourists

rapid is a section of a river where the river bed has a relatively steep gradient causing an increase in water velocity and turbulence. Rapids are categorized in classes, generally running from I to VI. A Class 5 rapid may be categorized as Class 5.1-5.9. While class I rapids are easy to negotiate and require no maneuvering, class VI rapids pose threat to life with little or no chance for rescue. (from Wikepedia).

Rapids create what we call as whitewater. And this formation is best-suited for river rafting!

Here in the Philippines, here are the top 5 rapids that I have seen.
