    There is another lake at the side of the volcano. There are two lakes, one at the bottom of the volcano and one at the top. So, if you consider trekking all the way to the top, make sure to register at the the gate. And, there are official guides to take you there. It costs about P150.00 ($3.00).

    Bring your diving gear and swimsuits!

    by joiwatani Written Oct 10, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Bulusan Volcan Natural Park is not only good for walking but also good for diving and swimming as well.

    I was told by the volunteer that there are swimmers who swim across the lake for fun!

    (Twenty years ago when this park was not popular yet, we went skinny dipping!)

    Compliment the volunteers at the park

    by joiwatani Written Oct 10, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was introduced to the volunteer of the park (unfortunately I forgot his name). He had been volunteering at Bulusan Volcano Natural Park for over three years. He cleans and maintains the cleanliness of the park and he does it for free and for the love of nature!

    If you see him, just compliment him and tell him what a great job he is doing!!!

    By the way, he does not get paid at all. He just have a place to stay at the park and he can fish at the lake for free!!!

    Check out for wild orchids and wild flowers

    by joiwatani Written Oct 10, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While walking around the lake, I noticed a lot of wild flowers I have not seen in other parts of the Philippines. There are also different kinds of vines and ivies. It was absolutely exhilirating to walk around the lake because of the beauty and lushness of the forest!

    No matter how tired I was, I enjoyed the huge trees having all those hanging vines and orchids in them!

    The flora and fauna of the Bulusan Lake

    by joiwatani Updated Sep 11, 2010

    It's absolutely amazing to see the different kinds of vines that grow wild and hanging on the huge trees! There are also many orchids that just grow wild. I check out on the different wildflowers. While walking along the path, I probably had seen eight different kinds of huge butterflies just flying around.]

    There is also this insect that is so small that makes a loud noise- so loud that it felt like there are so many insects making noises. However, I was told by Rolly and Ronnie, my companions, that the insect that makes the loudest noise is just a little insect called cicada.

    by joiwatani Written Sep 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are barbecue places here-it's on the eastern side of the park, close to the small hut and close to the grotto. It's probably about 15 minutes walk to the barbecue place. There is also a bathroom nearby.

    There are booths and cottages where you can bring your friends and family for a picnic here at Bulusan Volcano Natural Park. There are also places where you can barbecue. On the eastern side of the park, there is also a nice bathroom where you can wash.

    Go diving or fishing

    by joiwatani Written Sep 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was never told that fishing or diving is prohibited in the park. I saw a volunteer waiting for his partner who went diving and spear-diving. He caught some small fish.

    He told me that the water was cold but refreshing. If I had enough time, I would have swam across the lake and back...

    Love and hug a tree! For me, I took a picture!

    by joiwatani Updated Sep 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This natural park is one of the most beautiful park I have ever seen. It's very remote and very peaceful to come here. My feeling was like I am almost close to paradise!

    Twenty years ago, I came here and went skinny dipping. It was a time when there were no tourists coming here yet. It was absolutely the most beautiful and memorable thing I did when I was young!

    When I came back here, the place is already developed by the government so I was kind of afraid that some of those huge trees might be cut by the people. So, I hugged some of the trees and took some pictures of them! At least, I will have them in pictures...

    I am hoping, however, that the people there will maintain the sanctity of the place by keeping those huge trees alive!!!

    You can rent a kayak

    by joiwatani Updated Sep 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are good in kayaking, now it's your time to paddle your rented kayak around the lake.

    Might as well bring your own bathing suit and swim.

    The water is cold but the view is beautiful. You are surrounded by the forest, basically, in a natural park...

    Count the falcons and eagles flying around the lak

    by joiwatani Updated Sep 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Per the park volunteer, there are about 46 falcons and eagles flyng around the lake. I had seen several and wanted to take a picture of them but I don't have a zoom lense. I just have my Sony Cybershot Camera so it's not possible for me to show them. However, it was a magnificent sight to see these birds just having a wonderful time flying around the lake.

    Take a trek around the lake

    by joiwatani Written Sep 11, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It takes about 45 minutes to walk around the lake. The paths are all paved so there is no problem of walking on muddy paths!

    There are so many beautiful mahogany trees on the way, including different kinds of plants and wild flowers.

    I just love hugging those huge trees!

    It feels like you are in a God's land, in a paradise just walking around the lake!

    You can see the calmness of the lake while you see about 50 falcons and eagles just flying on top of the lake...It's such a beautiful sight!

    L-O-V-E-L-Y!!!

    So do you think it's free? Not really. The park is asking for a P10.00 entrance free per person. The driver is free.

    Check out the grotto

    There's a small grotto here that I found while walking around the lake. It's pretty nice as it faces towards the lake and the cemented tables and chairs.
