Long before whitewater rafting became an adventure sport in Cagayan de Oro City, rafting in the river is done by the old style bamboo rafts.

But spotted just a few weeks ago are these two bamboo rafts just near Duaw Park carrying some firewood and two “passengers” as they cruise along the river.

The two rafts came from further upstream and “docked” near city hall.
