My Back to Back Surigao Adventure 2

I've been hearing a lot of entrancing stories about this river from my relatives  before who were able to visit the place. And their tall tales whetted my curiosity to examine this mystical river for myself.


 Rios Encantados

Hidden in a small town of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur is a threshold of blue-crystal clear waters of Enchanted River. The name says it all. You will be truly enraptured by its inconceivable beauty and be intrigued by its mystery. I have learnt from people that the depth of the river is immeasurable. According to them, one man dared to dive into the deep but was never found again. It was believed that the mythical creatures got him. There were also reported sightings of a green guy (baka siokoy?) and two ladies in white who walked on the surface of waters and suddenly disappeared. Sila daw yung mga pinaniniwalaang bantay sa nasabing ilog, which gave us the reason not to swim anymore (laughs).




Actually, we hit the place already past four  in the afternoon. We indulged our hungry tummy first in a fine turo-turo eatery (point- point? LOLZ) in town. Kaya naman nung dumating kami sa area, hindi na ako nagsayang ng oras pa.  My camera just keep on snapping pictures. I mean, beautiful pictures.




We did not enjoyed the waters  that much because its almost night time. We were discouraged by some local people too to swim there for it was believed that the spirits or  the encantos will take the place by 6 in the evening. May it be true or just a mere product of wild imagination,  all I know is that my eyes were truly delighted by it's beauty. I wonder why it was not nominated in the modern wonders of the world?




Nauubusan na ata ako ng magagandang adjectives sa lugar na ito kaya  see it for yourselves na lang. This is indeed a must-visit destination in the Philippines. Gora na!

Yay! Baka pag swim mo sa tubig di ka na makaahon dahil kinuha ka na mga encantados. Katakot! Lol!

@ Angel: My flights naman from mnila to butuan. Pwede rin sa Davao pero mas mabilis ang byahe if your going to start in Butuan going to Bislig City (Surigao del Sur).
May mga cheap Inns din nmn sa city proper. Tas may mga for hire din n van or trcycle papuntang Hinatuan at Tinuy-an falls...

Sayang at hindi ninyo na enjoy ang paglangoy ninyo d'yan. Buti at hindi ka nahila ng mga encantos. Kung nadala kanila siguor eh sanan nai-blog mo na ang kanilang kaharian at nang mabasa namin ang tungkol duon. :-)

Naku sa lahat ng ayokong swimmingan ay ilog, very hindi ka lulutang dahil nga tabang na tubig, nakakalunod at nakakahila pababa, scary, reminds me sa swimming namin last summer sa isang ilog din here in Bulcan na reportedly may namamatay din!

Sobrang inviting pa naman ng tubig, but when you here those white ladies, (natatako na ko ngayon as i type, gabi pa naman!)naku, better leave!

Pero ang ganda ng place sobra, ang sarap magvacation, unwind, sa ganyang lugar! salamat sa mga pasalubong na mga larawan!

caloy said...

Pong said...

be blessed, ser!

I visited the place just last week and it was one of the best places I've been to!

The long drive was all worth it! Tinuy-an Falls and Enchanted River was just truly a majestic tourist spot!
