This is definitely one of the saddest places to drive in the Philippines…
Crossing from Surigao Del Norte to Surigao Del Sur is something I have done many times, but I never decided to show any of the unbelievable mining that you can see along the road.
It is pretty sad when you drive for kilometres and see everything smothered in orange and all the vegetation destroyed. But saying that… even the computer I am using right now to type this… it uses minerals from mining. This video is just my journey headed south from Siargao to Surigao Del Sur, crossing by boat back to mainland Mindanao, and heading down the unbelievable mining road to Tandag city.
Just raw, real, and what you will see if you take this road while travelling in the Philippines.
