These rivers merge at the entrance of Tbolok proper. These tributaries originate from Lake Holon and merges with Allah river that extends more than kilometers to Maguindanao and Cotabato City.

The Rare Flora and Fauna A variety of ferns, wild orchids, weird-looking mushrooms, wild flowers and rare flora like pitcher plants are aplenty along the trail. Red stick insects also thrive in the forests of Parker and my group was lucky to have seen one. The bad news was one of my climbing buddies accidentally sat on it. The red stick insect was already lifeless when we saw it inside her tent.
Many parts of the trail are considered alimatok leech country, meaning places where these blood-sucking assassins thrive.
