  • A Quick Side Trip To Lake Mainit

    A Quick Side Trip To Lake Mainit

    Right after I left Surigao City last November 25, I boarded a Butuan City-bound Bachelor Bus at the integrated transport terminal near Surigao Airport. An hour later, I reached Magpayang in Mainit town where I transferred to a tricycle that brought me to Kasili, a lake-side resort.

Lake Mainit is surrounded by the towns of Mainit and Alegria of Surigao del Norte and Kicharao and Jabonga of Agusan del Norte. Resembling the country of Arg ...

    Gifted with so many unspoiled wonders, the province is perhaps best known as the home of marvelous Lake Mainit, the fourth largest lake in the country with a total ar ...
