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Yet another outdated post of mine.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

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.
