TaiTai River  Mt. Banahaw de Lucban is very wet, with more than 280 days of rain per year, and is the essential watershed for the surrounding towns and farms.  But, like most volcanic mountains in the tropics, the mountain is very porous and there is little surface water.  Rivers and permanent streams are few.  The Taitai River is one of these few.  This beautiful river is just a few hours’ walk from base camp, and provided some welcome relief from the steamy heat as well as some unique collecting.
