Situated in the northeastern part of Mindanao Island, about 208 kilometers away from Davao City. The Province of Surigao del Sur is quite a few tourist destinations in Mindanao Island that has a lot to offer when it comes to the beauty of nature.
The R Tours invited nature lovers and enthusiasts alike to marvel in Tinuy-an Falls and in Enchanted River.
For about 5 hours travel from Davao City, we then arrived in Mangagoy, Bislig City. We took our breakfast and then after some rest we traveled for almost an hour headed to Barangay Borboanan where the magnificent Tinuy-an Falls is located. Touted as “Little Niagara Falls” of the Philippines and has a three tiered white water curtain flows with a towering 180 feet tall and 311 feet wide . The mist coming from the gush of water from above embraced and soaked our body even if we did not dip yet into the water.
The water was so white in color as seen rushing from the top of the falls down to its wall and into the edge at the bottom as we leaned our back giving us a relaxing atmosphere as it touches our body just like being given a massage in a spa and that soothed us from the long travel we had that morning. Other higher tier of the falls can be accessed through a metal ladder in a thick forest hills designed to make the visitors comfortable while enjoying the scenery. Everyone enjoyed every jiffy of our three and a half hour stay while we were there as the cameras and videos were busy too capturing the moment.
It has been my third time being there to witness this wide gigantic falls with a unique formation. The feeling is always mutual with the first timers who first glanced this majestic Tinuy-an Falls – Marvelous!
Participants who joined this tour were all in high spirits, wearing a happy faces after all the experience they had from Tinuy-an Falls. Some changed dry clothes while some barely dry, stayed wet on their clothes traveled to our second destination which was the splendid Hinatuan’s Enchanted River. Click here
