OVERNIGHT CAMPING AT BITBIT, NORZAGARAY


Bitbit River is known mostly to mountain bikers and our trip was courtesy of a Pro-Trek member who's been to this route a couple of times.

Bitbit in Norzagaray is partly home of the country’s famous dam system, the Angat-Ipo-La Mesa Dam that provides water to the Metropolis.  It is also known for the rock formation that adds drama to its scenery.

For this reunion trip, we just trailed our friends who were at the river early this morning.  After an hour of scuttle in the darkness of Norzagaray, we reached the Bitbit Bridge.  Then we proceeded to the river where we camped for the night. 

In the morning, just before the tourist flocked the area, we had great shots of the Bitbit scenery already – ducks crossing the river, the bridge which an ideal rappelling site and the huge rock formation.

Then slowly, the scene was filled with tourists…  Some came on truck, others on trike while most were on their bikes.  The clear river was slowly clouded by the increase of swimmers.  And the quiet stream was shrouded with toddlers-cry, mothers-scream, and visitors-laughter.
