Escape to Lake Sebu in South Cotabato

View of the lake from the Punta Isla restaurant
After a short photo shoot in Surallah, I headed straight to the overland terminal to catch a van to Lake Sebu. The sign board showed that the van departs every 20 minutes But I waited for almost 30 minutes before it actually left the terminal since there were only few passengers. In fact, we were only six when it departed.

One of the seven waterfalls
I arrived in Lake Sebu after almost an hour and immediately contracted a habal habal (tricycle) driver to take me to the seven falls and drop me back to Punta Isla Lake Resort. .

I was stunned by the beauty that is of the waterfalls. The habal habal driver convinced me to take the zip line and so I did and it was such an amazing experience. The best zip line ride I had so far. I love it and would like to do it again!

After the zip line ride, I left the seven falls and went to Isla Punta to take my brunch. I ordered pinaputok na tilapia and rice. Unfortunately, they do not serve food for solo travelers so they serve me three pieces of big tilapia. I ended up eating two and brought home the other one.

After brunch, I decided to roam around the resort and took photos of the magnificent view of the lake.
