    Lake Sebu Dreamweavers Land

    As Kind and I leave Surallah behind, the slow pace of rural Mindanao takes over. Rice fields stretch until the point near the horizon where Mount Matutum seems to grow. Children run around the side of the road. Jagged coconut trees and wooden houses dot the otherwise green landscape. Once again, I'm having that particular brand of excitement that I get every time I embark on an adventure.

    I get off the motorbike for a few minutes at the town center, where a few stalls sell meals, canned drinks and souvenir items. There's a large "I Heart Lake Sebu" on a fence that encloses the majestic stat ...

    Feeling rested and energized on a cold December morning, we began the day waiting for our breakfast order at one of the huts along the lake shore. The morning sun was already up, its golden rays reflecting off the tranquil waters of the lake and revealing the magenta blossoms of lotus plants now fully awake in the morning light. Here and there white herons would glide over the waters and come to rest on the bamboo poles stretched out to mark the fish pens. A dugout canoe slowly glided along the placid waters, its skilled helmsman guiding the craft around patches of lotus plants. We could not h ...

    Lake Sebu Waterfalls

    We've seen photos of this waterfall countless times before but when we finally saw it in real life it was far more majestic. The towering falls was like a scenic magnet, beckoning and pulling you to get ever closer with each step you take. And as you get closer you begin to feel the cold spray of its pounding waters in the gentle breeze. This is Hikong Bente, a T'boli phrase translated "immeasurable." They couldn't have picked a more suitable epithet.

    Lake Sebu probably has the one of the densest concentration of waterfalls in the country. In Barangay Seloton alone ??" al ...
