Lake Balinsasayaw

This Lake Balinsasayao is one of the famous lakes in Negros Oriental because this can be found 1,000 ft above sea level on the northwest of a mountain ridge: Mount Mahungot to the south, Mount Kalbasan to the north, Mount Balinsasayao to the east and Guintabon Dome to the West. You have to rent a car or a motorcycle in order to reach the lake. Well there are habal-habal drivers that you can ask to take you there.


Before you reach Lake Balinsasayao, you’ll find Lake Kabalin-An. Most of the tourists thought that this is already Lake Balinsasayao while some thought that this is just a swamp beside the road.

Entrance is 30 pesos if you are from the local but if you are a foreigner, it is double the price. I wonder why it has to be like that.



Well there’s a log where you can climb over and can take pictures with that beautiful background.




There is a “bangka” that can be rented if you want to look around the lake. I think it cause 200 pesos. My friends have already tried it that’s why I didn’t get to have a chance to ride on it. Well, maybe next time.

  1. Nice! My friends told me about this place years before but I'm not into trekking hehehe Nindot kay you're brave enough to do it! 🙂

  2. So beautiful! Lake Balinsasayaw is actually in my list, I think it's one of the spots going to Mt. Talinis. Ahhh…can't wait to go there. 😀

  3. I think I need to update my bucket list for this. I've never been to Negros Oriental but your photos make me want to head over! I bet the lake is not open to swimmers, right? hehe.

  4. I can't believe how Lake Balinsasayaw has changed. The last time I went there was more than 10 years ago. I think I need to go back there soon.

  5. I missed the chance to be here last June as I had to already leave for the US. My associates instead filled in for me. 26 more months hopefully and this will be on my list.

  6. Wow! Not to sound so cliche, but Lake Balinsasayaw is so beautiful and serene! Planning to include this on my bucket list. 🙂
