My Back to Back Surigao Adventure

Located at the eastern coast of Mindanao lies a beautiful province of Surigao del Sur. This place has  so many to offer. Friendly  people, cheap tropical fruits and beautiful spots. Two of the most strikingly attractive  destinations in Surigao del Sur that I have recently visited were the stunning "Tinuy-an Falls" and the mysterious "Enchanted River". And I would say I am very fortunate to see these diverse beauty of nature in my own naked eyes.

The Tinuy-an Falls

Philippines' mini Niagara
Our first destination was this multi-tiered waterfalls called Tinuy-an situated in Bislig City, Surigao del Sur.  We didn't worried about hiring a van or jeepney  'coz my cousin brought his car. Buti na lang sumama siya. LOLZ. It was an exhausting trip. We experienced hours of bumpy ride. But it was worth the taking after we reached the place and able to see the beautiful landscape of nature.

I don't know why it's called Tinuy-an. Maybe it was derived from the Visayan word "tu-yo" which means “meant for something” or “to be of specified importance” or something  like that but you see, it was just  only my wild guessing haha!

First Level

Upon entering the area, you will be welcomed by a small falls ....


You may rent a bamboo raft if you want to go towards the falls...



And enjoy the beautiful sights that's naturally existing...


The best part is the second level. The water drops at approximately 120 feet high (me thinks) and a depth of 50 feet. If you're not good at swimming, you are encouraged to wear life vest in this area. Pramis! Malalim siya!





Kaya pinagkasya ko na lang ang sarili na magpicture picture sa gilid ng talon kasi hindi ako marunong lumangoy haha!

I was not yet satisfied so I went to the next level...


There I enjoyed the waterfalls massaging my whole body.

 But I wondered how’s it like there on top?


So I pursued the final stage…


It was pretty tough climbing the top but I never rued reaching it...


'coz it feels so good. It feels like I'm the mighty one standing on top of everything. LOL.



Top
And I was amazed because everything up there is so calm and relaxed. Can't even hear a single clamoring sound of falls.



The group left the place around 2:00 PM and headed to the next destination, the Enchanted River (next post).

Ako rin hindi marunong lumangoy but I like the beach and any body of water. I like your photo yung parang lumilapad ka. Teka ilang stages ba ang waterfalls dyan. so far three lang naakyat ko dito sa amin out of seven. Mahirap kasi pag di kaya ng kasama mo kelan mo rin huminto. waiting for the next post. exciting. parang summer lang all year round.

Ansaya namans ng adventure. Kaso parang nakakatakot umakyat sa falls dahil baka madulas. Atsaka sabi mo nga malalim ang tubig.

medyo unique s'ya in a way na di narrow vertically yung falls. expansive ang binabaksakan n'ya. very nice ang place.
