We went here through Nagcarlan and Lake Yambo because the fastest way was already blocked. The lake is clean and nice.

This area is underrated. Few people visit it despite being not that far from Manila. The lake itself is really pretty and the place is perfect for a relax morning or afternoon. No pollution, no noise, just beautiful mother nature! Recommended.
