I think I don't need to add photos for this, pictures of Enchanted river is all over the internet already. For a first time goer like me all i can say is that it was really a breath taking view! Not only the view, the water is really fun to swim and dive in because of its clarity and crystal... More

The sight of blue, flowing river in the middle of lush trees and grasses would always cool your sendes on any hot day. To see this river is not enough. The sight would lure you to dip in its splendor. The pleasure of indulging would exceed your expectation. You've never been there if you won't wade into the water. At... More

A good place for snorkeling, a truly enchanting river although i best expected it to be fresh water but the experience was great. A must try too is their boat rides, it was cheap like $2.75/ hour and good for five persons. We spent 3 hours hopping and gave the navigators a $3.00 tip. It was so worth it.

We, unfortunately, took a more circuitous route through the mountains to Bislig, which is not recommended. It's much better to go via San Francisco.Once there, it's a short trip to the Enchanted River and it's well worth a... More

From the highway, you have to travel about 7 km before reaching the area. It's not an easy ride, like you're in the middle of nowhere, but once you reach it, everything is worth it. Nobody has ever found out how deep is the River. One of the reasons it is called enchanted is that no one has ever reached... More

You can never under estimate what nature could do in terms of fascinating people at it's beauty because the natures beauty is as beautiful as those manmade.
