Pls Register and lets enjoy discussing LAKE SEBU in the Forum section.

Mystical Lake Sebu

Lake Sebu in South Cotabato, one of the top tourism destinations of Region 12, is famous for its three scenic natural lakes – Lahit (24 hectares), Seloton (48 hectares), and Sebu (354 hectares). It proudly hosts seven waterfalls, natural springs, and preserved cultural communities of the town’s colorful T’boli tribe. It is also situated at an elevation of 1,000 ft, so its natural coolness earned itself the moniker of Summer Capital of Southern Philippines.

Two years ago, the provincial government of South Cotabato launched a P100-million tourism development project funded by the local government that is mainly focused on road development networks and the establishment of resort facilities for the town’s seven waterfalls.

Cable and zip lines are now underway to provide exhilarating adventures for those who are brave enough to zoom from Seven Falls Number 1 to Seven Falls Number 2 (which has the sheerest and most spectacular drop) while looking down at the breathtaking panorama. Accommodation is available for visitors who want to stay the night in a number of resorts whose cottages vary from Php500 and up. Throughout surprising changes and developments, the place remains to be enchanting, serene, and magical.

How to get there:

General Santos City is the gateway to Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. From Davao City, it is a 2-hour ride to General Santos City, another hour to Koronadal City (formerly Marbel), then an hour to Lake Sebu, South Cotabato on smooth roads.
