Tinuy-an Falls of Bislig City

We arrived in Mangagoy at around 7:00 in the morning. We meet our guide for the whole day and went instantly to our first destination, the Tinuy-an Falls of Bislig City. It took almost an hour before we reach the falls and it is already starting to drizzle. And when we arrived, I was so excited to see the ‘Niagara Falls’ of Mindanao.

However, what I imagined was so different from the actual falls in front of me. Apparently, we went there on a summer and when the country is struggling with El Nino. Even so, we we’re still in awe although we’re a little bit fighting that time. lol

The Enchanted River of Surigao del Sur

One of the top tourist destination in the country can be found in Mindanao. It is the Enchanted River of Surigao del Sur. I guess, everyone has it on their bucket list. It was even featured in one of the blogs where it says ‘one of the destination you need to go before you die’. The name itself describes the river for its enchanting stories and mysterious events.

But why is it called Enchanted River and what makes it enchanting? Locals say that there are supernatural beings who resides there. Encountering new species of fish that is hard to be caught whatever method they use is one of their stories. Fishes coming out at exactly 12 noon after the bell strikes is somewhat amazing yet mind boggling. Many swimmers drown in the river and has never been found again. But are all of these true or just mere stories?
