Malumpati Cold Spring is a popular eco-tourism destination located in Pandan, Antique. It’s known for its refreshing natural pools fed by a cold spring surrounded by a lush green forest. The exact source of the Malumpati Cold Spring’s water is a bit mysterious, but it’s believed to originate from a series of interconnected underground springs and rivers. The designated swimming area is a natural pool downstream, but the actual source is further upstream called the Blue Lagoon. This source feeds the Bugang River, which is known for its exceptional clarity. Some sources claim the Bugang River even extends into other municipalities through a network of subterranean rivers.
