Agusan del Norte is a third-class province and the second-smallest in the Caraga Region. The northeastern and western regions are mountainous. There are flat, sloping areas in between, especially where the Agusan River drains into Butuan Bay. Its crystal-clear waters shine with the sun’s brilliant reflection, and beautiful landscapes, intriguing caverns, pear-shaped lake, and multi-tiered waterfalls welcome you.
