And as the clock hits noon, the Hinatuan Hymn is played from loud speakers. Like an ancient ritual, people who are swimming immediately paddled back to land while the fishes assemble near the riverbank.

Several professional divers have attempted to explore the brackish waters and the underwater compartments at the river.

“Many foreigners attempted to reach the bottom but until today, no one has ever reached it,” said Baguasan.

Perhaps it is a gatewell to the Underworld? Who knows.

There are some sort of fairy story and pixies are popular among the locals. Baguasan, said that the fairies and pixies, along with mermaids which they say swim upstream, protect the river, most especially from outsiders, but dont be afraid just respect the environment and they will not harm you surely.

Looks like monsters live at the bottom of that lake 🐉 and they wait for children to go swimming alone 🏊 and then the monsters pounce! 🐙 🐳 👾 🌊 💔 💀 😱 👼
