Enchanted River: Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur Philippines

From the majestic Tinuy-an Falls. We headed to another remote place of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur the hidden treasure called the Enchanted River.

From the Hinatuan National Highway a 12 kilometer rough and very remote road has to be traversed before one can reach the Enchanted River.

When we arrived at the destination one would not think that their is something special around. But as you explore the long and pain-in-the-butt travel is all worthy.

It was around 12-noon when we arrived at the enchanted river, a loud music was being played and most of the visitors rushed their way towards the mouth of the river. It was fish feeding time. Many fish from the deep water is coming to the surface to take part of the food. The size of 1 ft- 1 1/2 ft fish are seen. It was so amazing.

After the fish feeding time we then dive into the greenish and then dark blue crystal clear water. One can swim with the fish in an 80-foot deep enchanted river. It looks like a  deep blue basin with clear and fresh water that then rushes into their beautiful sea.

Swimming at the enchanted river of Surigao del sur was indeed a very memorable experience that I will surely experience again in the future.
