Photographer’s comment: “Maharlika means majestic. Indeed the river’s name rings true to its beauty and grandeur. Majestic, pristine waters and rocks, all covered with different species of mosses. The shady habitat in this montane forest enables different species of mosses to thrive. This pristine river is found in the only remaining intact forest in the area as neighboring mountains are already being logged.
