South Cotabato's Lake Sebu: The Perfect Destination For The Adventurous Mindanaoan!

Lake Sebu, mainly used for aquaculture, covers over 354 hectares in South Cotabato. It is home to the freshest tilapia this side of the Philippines, and often pulls in numerous visitors every year. Tranquil as it may, the lake itself and the nearby areas are host to numerous activities that easily cater to travelers of varying enthusiasm. The nearby falls—all seven of them, all varying in difficulty—are also perfect for waterfall chasers.

Some of the exciting activities include the jaw-dropping and heart-pumping zipline ride that is the longest in Asia, which takes you to three of its falls. 

For the calmer traveler, canoeing in the lake’s waters make you appreciate the serenity of your surroundings and makes for a perfect photo background. Besides, you never know, fish might start jumping in your canoe!

And the newest exhilarating ride in Lake Sebu? Paragliding! Come November 9 to 10, 2016, there will be a paragliding fun fly at the Helobung Festival and adventure seekers can now glide under Lake Sebu skies, and over its water. Who wouldn't want to feel the serenity of this magnificent place, both in the skies, and in the water?

If you’re heading to South Cotabato, feel the thrill in Lake Sebu.

How to Get There:

Fly to General Santos City from Manila and Cebu.  From GenSan, take the bus to Koronadal City (1 hour) then another bus/van ride to Lake Sebu (45 mins).
