The Majestic Mt. Bulusan

We went to Bulusan Lake and did some kayaking. Although it was a bit rainy, we still enjoyed the calm waters of Bulusan Lake. Very picturesque. Will definitely go back.

Watch out guys, it is closed now because of the Typhoon, which was here before the Christmas. You can get to the lake and rent a kayak, but that's it- no trekking path are accesible. Now it is not worth the journey. Anyway we took a jeepney from Sorsogon to Gubat (40 min, 30php), then jeepney again to Bulusan (45... More

Beautiful place! Coming here was a spur-of-the-moment decision, and we're glad we did! Upon reaching the entrance arch, you will immediately feel a drop in the temperature. The air is crisp, will remind you of Tagaytay. It's probably due to the dense forest surrounding the area. The whole area is actually a protected area of rainforest, thus, if you want... More

Staff - They were really kind, accommodating and knowledgeable. They also make a killer snail meal. Guide - Our guide was over 60 years old and yet he was able to climb the mountain and get to the lake. Who can trek? - our guide is 60 and our youngest trekker with us was just 6 years old. Just keep... More

Of course the place is beautiful! But its tourism has gone a bit far with a very pricey food! There were 10 of us and we ate pancit, cold tablea drink and rice and we were charged P1,600! Quite unfair price for us budget travellers. Yes, I recommend that you go here but please don't eat here! Be warned!

The place is a bit far from even the nearest city, Sorsogon City. Two connecting jeepney rides (Sorsogon City to Gubat, then Gubat- Bulusan). Once there, you can have a relaxing time. Kayaking in the lake for PHP200 is a good sports.

Mount bulusan is a hidden treasure waiting to be discovered by tourists. Its a nice and tranquil place perfect for couples and family members. You have to bring food and snacks before going here for there are no stores here that offers anything to eat. You could do picknick under the shed of their gazeebos and grill barbecue.

Just as travelling for 12 hours from Manila to Sorsogon; seeing the marvelous Mt. Bulusan will take your breath away! A calm morning seeing all the greenery and the looking at the wonderful creation is a realization that simple living and nature loving is too far from the busy life of the City. Breathing the fresh air, smelling the grass... More
