  • A lake that is shared by different towns..there are places(barangay facing the lake) where one can experience its true beauty and feel relaxed..there are places as well where some cleaning is needed.. people living here should maintain the cleanliness and avoid loitering...
  • It was a great experience visiting the smallest active volcano in the world. Trail is a little bit dirty with horse's poo so don't wear your favorite shoes. I didn't have much exercise so the hike is hard for me. Hiring a horse is also a good idea but make sure to hold tightly as there's almost nothing to hold on to nor a helmet. It was a good idea to go early so you have all the space to your photoshoot without the crowd and the hot sun. Make sure to bring your own water or beverage and don't assume that the drinks up there are free. Our foreigner friends did.
