TUGUEGARAO CITY, Philippines – The Department of Public Works anf Highways ( DPWH) has completed the upgrade of a road going to the famed Vayang Rolling Hills in Batanes.

DPWH – Batanes District Engineering Office (DPWH-BDEO) said the project will make it easier for tourist to reach the destination.

With a contract amount of P34, 893,209, the road stretch was improved from gravel to road in order to make the site easier to travel with for the locals and the tourists.

“The Vayang Rolling Hills is one of the most recognizable tourist destinations here in the province. This road upgrading project will ensure faster and smoother travelling experience for the public,” DPWH Batanes Engineer Rommel E. Fabi said.

“This will also help reduce dust pollution and ensure immediate delivery of basic services to the residents living near the area,” he added.

The Vayang Rolling Hills is one of the famous landmarks in the province of Batanes, offering a view of a seemingly endless wave of hills.

The tourist spor also offers a spectacular view of the West Philippine Sea.

The project began in March 2016 and was funded under 2016 General Appropriations Act.
