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. 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.

  2. 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.
