Tourist Sites in Luba, AbraWhat to see and visit around the Municipality of Luba
The municipality of Luba boasts several natural wonders that may captivate both tourists and adventurers. Arriving in Luba is an adventure in itself, involving crossing the river via motorized rafts or a temporary land bridge during the dry season. Alternatively, one can take the longer yet more scenic route through the hills of Pilar.
With the bridge on the Tumbal crossing already taking shape, Luba is sure to be a must-visit destination. Here’s a list of places for you to consider visiting.
Tourist Sites in Luba, Abra
Tourist Sites in Luba Town
Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Luba
Luba became a parish in 1956, the same year the original wooden structure of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church was finished. The modern concrete church you see there today, which took three years to build, was inaugurated on June 26, 2004. Next door to the church is the old convent, which is now part of the Catholic School. Half of what used to be a two-story wooden building is now concrete.
Sabnangan Suspension Footbridge
Formerly known as the Senator Juan Flavier Footbridge, this 560-meter suspension footbridge links Barangay Poblacion with Barangay Sabnangan. The Sabnangan Hanging Bridge spans the Abra River and is considered one of the longest footbridges not just in the Philippines but also in Southeast Asia.

These multi-level seasonal falls are just a short five-minute hike from the road, boasting numerous pools for bathing and over 15 levels. Challenge yourself to reach the top!
They are only open during the rainy season.
Banaao Lake, Sitio Lipting Brgy. Ampalioc
Banaao Lake lies south of Mt. Poswey. If you hike up from Barangay Sabnangan, its peak will be visible, along with the mountain ranges of Luba and Tubo. Alternatively, you can drive via Abra-Cervantes road through Brgy. Ampalioc.
The lake covers an approximate area of 20,000 square meters. A boat is available if you wish to explore the lake.
Kaungugan Cave, Sitio Botot, Barangay Barit
A thirty-minute hike from the jump-off point, through rice fields and creeks, leads to Kaungugan Cave. This cave showcases stalactites, stalagmites, a column, soda straws, and various flowstone formations. Additionally, there is a pool that flows out toward a Kaparkan-like formation.
Other Interesting Spots
Karst Rock Formation, Brgy. Tuquipa
Along the road to Brgy, Barit, awaits a short yet challenging ascent to the peak of a Karst Rock Formation. Concealed within this jagged limestone rock formation lies a cave system. Prepare to navigate sharp rocks along a rugged, uneven path as you climb.
This is one of the many Karst Rock Formation in the municipality.
Yabyaban Viewpoint, Sitio Botot, Brgy. Barit
As Abra is a landlocked province, we adore places where we can watch the sun disappear beyond the horizon, often from atop the hills overlooking the sea. This spot is an excellent place to relax after a day of exploration while awaiting the sunset.
Where to Eat in Luba
Ren Ren Store, situated in Poblacion along the road immediately after Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, offers a variety of basic Filipino carinderia dishes. Typically, the jeepney heading to Tubo makes a rest stop at this store.
