AdventuRoj Surigao del Sur Adventure

Yet another outdated post of mine. Back when I wasn’t still a blogger, not even in possession of my baby Nikon D3000 DSLR. So  pardon me if my shots here aren’t as great. But anyway an adventure is an adventure no matter what, so here goes my Surigao adventure.

The Plan

I had always wanted to visit Surigao del Sur but with no one to accompany me, this hadn’t been realized. Not until last year when my roomate and friend invited me over to their company’s outdoor trip. The trip was scheduled on August 28-29, 2011. Destination is at Surigao del Sur, with the Enchanted River and Hinatuan Falls as the main courses.

What tempted me even more to come was that because the trip will be on a budget one. My friend, along with her co workers (of which I know no one. Oops. I haven’t thought of that) do know someone from Surigao who will host them (or us). That alone could already be big savings! Plus the vehicle that will be used will also belong to one of their other co worker who also lives at Surigao. Talk about cost cutting huh? 🙂 Continue reading

Crystal Clear Enchanted River, HInatuan, Surigao del Sur

The Arrival

Enchanted River opens at 6:00 and the entrance fee is only P10.00 because it is operated by the local government. Visitors are allowed to bring foods and drinks but if you want to eat fresh sea foods, you can request people in the area to grill fish. Inside the area, there are several cottages ready for visitors.

Enchanting Enchanted Day

Hinatuan is one of the two municipalities in Surigao del sur, aside from San Miguel, that situated in the most secluded part of the province, almost located in the middle of the rainforest of Surigao del sur. Aside from its location, the road leading to Enchanted River is very rough, however despite the long and exhausting journey, both on wheels and on foot, the view when we arrived painted smiles on our faces. It was very much worth it.
