In line with LGU-Camalig’s advocacy in promoting local tourism, heads and functionaries under the Municipal Tourism & Cultural Heritage Office (MTCHO), Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO), and the Department of Environment & Natural Resources (DENR) held a consultation meeting today to formulate plans and programs for the year 2023.
As the new year opens with a laid-back and less threatening note due to the deminishing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, LGU-Camalig now pushes for the intensive implementation of plans, programs, and activities (PPAs) focused on the protection and conservation of Camalig’s tourism assets.
The meeting highlighted the formulation of protocols for effective cave management and assessment.
The initial dialogue between the 3 agencies is expected to spring out various outputs which underscore LGU-Camalig’s thrust toward an environment-friendly town with a revitalized tourism industry.
Dubbed as the “Heritage Town of Albay”, Camalig to date has a total of six (6) tourist spots comprised of the Hoyop-Hoyopan Cave at Cotmon, Quituinan Hills at Tinago, Sumlang Lake at Brgy. Sumlang, Solong Eco-Park at Solong, Quituinday Green Hills at Quituinday, and El Miro De Shei Integrated Farm at Salugan, along with St. John the Baptist Parish and colonial houses at the Poblacion areas.
