Mound formed by wind , rain draws birds, bats tourists in NCotabato
MLANG, North Cotabato, Philippines— A land formation in Barangay (village) New Rizal here, which residents previously paid little attention to, has been drawing visitors since early this year.
The curved crevices and holes in the seven-feet-high mound that stretches 50 meters long were formed by erosion due to rainwater and wind, Harold Santillan, the local tourism officer, said.
“It is a beautiful artwork of God,” a villager said.
Santillan said that despite being nearly stripped of trees or grass, the hill made up of loose sand and gravel has also drawn attention because of the various bird species and bats that have made it their home.
He said the transformation of the mound across the New Rizal Elementary School started in 2012 as rainwater washed away soil and the wind help form the crevices. He said villagers did not really pay serious attention to it.Add a comment
