Bangsi Festival in Maitum, Sarangani

One of our most recommended tourist destinations in SOCCSKSARGEN Region is the Municipality of Maitum in Sarangani Province.

The small town which name was derived from the native term maitum which means black that also pertains to legendary tales of black stones near one of its four major rivers has a lot to offer to tourists. The town is known for the discovery of unique anthropomorphic jars which are believed to be used during the Metal Ages. It is also where the famed white water tubing adventure at Pangi River and the annual Bangsi Festival can be experienced.
