The Government of Aborlan celebrates the Founding Anniversary with the Rakudan Festival. They have various activities such as Street Dancing Competition locally known as Kenda Ka’t Dalan, Mutya ng Aborlan (The Beauty pageant), Motocross Challenge, Sagwan Challenge, Aborlan Art Workshop and Painting competition, Futsal Tournament, Frisbee Tournament, Paskilaban ng Talento, Basketball League, Agro Trade-Fair and Parada ng Lechon.

The Parada ng Lechon (Parades of Lechon) is one of the festivities highlighted. They got this idea from the municipality’s name Aborlan which means land with boars. The barangays joined in this activity and enjoyed the food they served called “boodle fight’.

Aborlan is known for it’s Seven Line Coral Reefs. It has approximately 79,000 hectares of coral reefs which belong to a Marine Protected Area (MPA), it is a part of initiative two-country by WWF and Fondation Segré. The impressive coral reefs were protected to rebuild fish species.

There, you can find Pintingan Falls, a 20 meter drop waterfall which is sadly, not accessible. But, you still have another option and that will be The Talakaigan River, you can go camping and enjoy the cold water that runs down from the mountains.

The Municipality of Aborlan has resorts and restaurants, but there’s no other natural destinations to go yet, but the government officials were looking forward to modernizing the Pitningan Falls as this can be a good site for the tourist who love to go hiking into the mountains and visit waterfalls.
