When i arrived there after a long drive, all our tiredness just melted away when we saw the river. The water was so crystal clear, that I could see the fishes and the deep chasm underneath the crystal clear water. I can't believe what I saw, and even after seeing the photos on the internet and by friends who have been there, nothing could prepare me on what i saw with my own eyes!
The management was smart enough to split the river into two sections, one is the shallower part where those not brave or confident enough can waddle and enjoy the waters while the one with the deep blue waters is the one which contained the underwater chasm that can be seen in the photographs. The water is so clear, that I could see the people swimming on the other end of the river from where i was! When i swam over the underwater chasm, i was spectacularly thrilled with all the fishes swimming around and the nature of the rocks which really made my jaw drop. No photographs can do the place justice, you really need to go and see the river first hand to experience it. It's like nothing I've ever seen or experienced before in my life, and to think that its found in this remote area of the Philippines. It is indeed a hidden gem.
My only regret, was not having an underwater camera to capture the beauty beneath the waters, which you can't really capture from the surface. If you go there, you have to absolutely try to get your hands on an underwater camera and bring it there!!!!
