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

Lake Bulusan. It is forbidden to cut trees in this province, a policy that is taken very seriously.It is an awareness imposed to even the school graders. Charcoal is made only from coconut shells. There is no firewood ever on sale. This is why the forested areas are a sight to behold. Untouched by man. Free of tarpaulins. Dense foliage.... More

To climb the volcano takes a little prep and arriving at least a night early to book guides and a permit. Stay in Bulusan which is only an hour from Sorsogon. Then head to the lake where the guides are. Each guide and a porter are good for up to 5 people and costs 3500 peso. The trek is two... More

Lake Bulusan is a majestic scene, you can rent boats and have dinner along the lake, you can also try to avail the camping packages that are available, they can provide the tents, the gears, the manpower and the supplies as well for your need.

This is one of the Paradise Place in the world. It is a town that blends with nature. It has a volcano that you can watch without endangering yourself. Around the volcano are several hills and after the hills you can see one of the most beautiful lake in the Philippines and adjacent to it is a very clear spring... More

Mt. Bulusan is indeed very beautiful. The trek is not that hard but smokers might find it difficult. I suggest bringing at least 2 bottles of water, a mosquito/ insect repellent and a bottle of sunblock. Also make sure to wear comfortable clothes as it can get hot. Don't forget to take a fully-charged camera with you. The scenery is... More

We left Legazpi City at 3 o' clock pm and reached the municipality of Bulusan at around six in the evening. We checked-in at a residence house just across the police station owned by Philip. Each air conditioned room cost you Php 1,000.00/day. No breakfast since it is good for transient visitors only. The room could accommodate at least four... More

Mount Bulusan is an active volcano in the Philippines. Located in the province of Sorsogon, it takes about 16 hours to travel by land from Manila. If you take a plane ride to Legaspi, Bulusan should take about another 3-4 hours by land. The Bulusan Volcano Natural Park also hosts Bulusan lake. When we visited Mt Bulusan and Bulusan lake,...
