In the mountains of southern Negros Island, 12 km west of the town of Sibulan, Negros Oriental peacefully lie the captivating Lake Balinsasayao and its twin lake, equally breathtaking Lake Danao. One of the major tourist attractions in the province.
Lake Balinsasayao is a protected Natural Park, home to an expansive ecosystem and great biodiversity.
This area has especially in weekends a lot of nightlife. Try walk up some of the side streets to meet the local party-goers. On the main Boulevard you are more likely to run into other tourists.
How to get there
From the capital city of Negros Oriental, Dumaguete, the town of Sibulan is 6 kilometers away and about 20 minutes road travel time. From a certain point you head up to the mountains, a steep and winding path, until you reach the area for disembarking.
Finally you make a short descent to the lake by way of a man-made stairway made from flat stones. The majestic and serene lake slowly unfolds before your eyes as with the silhouette of the mountains behind it.
