The Hidden Tinago River, Surigao del Sur

Aside from the magnificent Enchanted River of the Municipality of Hinatuan, another river that is concealed for many is the Tinago River.

Tinago River

Tinago is a Cebuano word, which means hidden.  The water is not blue but the reflections of the lush forest on some portions of the river stretch paints the water color a shade of green, which makes it more pleasing and relaxing to the eyes.

The river has a wide mouth opening as it passes to the sea. Since the place is hidden, expect it also that the boat ride will be serene and relaxing.  Truly Surigao Del Sur is blessed with amazing tourist spots.  So what are you waiting for schedule a trip and grab your backpacks now.
