The Philippines has never ran out of beautiful places for visitors to see and explore. One could be fascinated and charmed when they visit this particular place that will attract their attention on its unusual character.
In Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, Philippines, there’s a river that the local people claimed to be enchanted. Unverified stories circulating, a fisherman laid claim stories of fish that could not be caught in the river because it is haunted by supernatural beings.
No diver has ever fathomed its depth, not even skilled or professional ones.
The “Enchanted River”, flows into the Philippine sea and the Pacific ocean at Barangay Talisay, Hinatuan. Modesto Farolan, the Father of Philippine Tourism, gave its name as described in his poem “Rio Encantado”.
This deep spring river, though enchanted as its name suggests, is slowly being unclothed of its mysteries. As far as divers have explored, they discovered a series of underground caves that interconnect each other acting as filters for the water making it clear all year round.
Local legends were inspired by its exceptional and mystifying color changes during daytime turning it to hues of sapphire and jade.
Experiments are still a continuing process to unearth how enchanted this river could be.
if i’ll tell my story to myself to entertain my state of mind i won’t fill my space with self-pity from feeling withdrawn and partly empty if pretense would make me look an upright person getting off the hook stinking stories from the wicked backdoor won’t break my heart when roars are washed ashore i will trust my own values and beliefs neglecting phony news thriving beyond limits embracing pure thoughts without fear they will be filled with honest hopeful cheers
sometimes i walk without my shadow following with closed eyes my spirit is on call wandering in the black of time it glides over the sea not mindful of its mercurial height until the zigzagging drop became the close-mouthed dawn
Teacher.adventurer is a blog recounting my nostalgic experiences during my travel. I had visited many countries and territories already (about 17 nations) nevertheless, I am still looking forward to navigating the world like a free bird- a citizen without borders. Traveling for me is a wholesome stress relieving, a feeling that I exist like the wind, the water and a silt that go where they are destined to go, believing it will end up to certainties somewhere else. I TEACH to spread goodwill,environmental sustainability and peace in the world! #Travel.Environment.Advocacy.Culture.Harmony
