Lake Balinsasayao

We visited the Twin Lake Balinsasayao with Don2x(Donna Summer), Xandra, and my brother Enro.

Lake 1 is Lake Balinsasayao, Lake 2 is Danao Lake (Danao is a dialect word for Lake). Its a Natural Park that is home to 180 species.The lakes are two small but deep crater freshwater lakes rising 1000 feet above sea level. The area is surrounded by lush tropical greens and vegetation. Age old trees, giant ferns and other exotic plants and orchids are among its natural inhabitants. Wild rare vines freely cling to the barks of the trees. The Almagica Tree, the tallest tree of the Philippines growing up to 60 meters tall, can still be found here.

Activities allowed in the lake include swimming, fishing, boating, trekking and kayaking. There is a clean restroom and a small store selling beverages and light snacks.Most people bring their own packed meals for a lunch picnic in one of the cottages that may be rented.
