This is your chance to stay away from the city wherein you can get a chance to feel the breeze of the air, chirping of the birds and watch the lotus flower bloomed. Weather is just like in baguio.

I really love adventures nor a nature lover. And yes, I really love Lake Sebu because of its nature beauty and freezy area. It's nice to stay overnight here with your friends or loveones.

Lake Sebu is a tourist destination in South Cotabato. There are many things to do when visiting the place such as cruising the lake, the 7 Falls zipline, visiting their museum, meeting the locals and experiencing their culture.

Normal lake with fishpens in parts of the lake. There are a few restaurants around the lake. Other then that, there is nothing particularly special about Lake Sebu.

Hi Duncansmith, Its more safe if you go with the native people from Cotabato, just dont go alone with people from Luzon because some of them cant take to travel to mindanao.
