It is only about an hour from Dumaguete but we were rained out on the first try. On the second try we were with friends that admitted to being 60 or over so we were turned away at the gate. We didn’t know there was manage limit because of COVID-19. But this time we just Qiang and I went on a whim and we finally made it to the lake.

Three Highlights

The three highlights of this Dumaguete Philippines Best Scenic Lake Tour are:

First. The scenic drive up the mountain once you exit the highway.

Second: The hike from the main lake to the smaller lake.

Third. The Alimyon Kapehan Cafe on the drive back down the mountain has some amazing views and incredible pastries.


The hike between the main lake (Balinsasayao) and the smaller lake (Danao) has rocks that are covered in moss. Luckily it also has a rail that you can hold onto. I actually slipped and almost fell three times during the 900-meter walk so make sure to hold onto the rail as you walk. Moss on wet rocks is about as slippery as imaginable. Do not let go of the rail. I am not kidding.
