Tuguegarao City Off The Beaten Path: 3 reviews and 2 photos


The Chico River Dam was built as part of a 7-dam plan to provide hydro electric power to Northern Luzon. The plan failed and presently, the dam is just used for irrigation. I honestly think it's such a waste and the whole idea behind the project was feasible but it would have also meant flooding several villages before the project could be completed.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
