Going to a place for the first time is always fun. Dumaguete City is relatively small and laid-back, but Dumaguete offers great and amazing spots which will surely give every traveler an exciting experience. One of the spots that truly worth the visit is the famous Dumaguete’s Twin Lakes: Balinsasayao and Danao.
Located in the mountains of the south-eastern half of Negros Island, 12 km west of the town of Sibulan, Negros Oriental peacefully lie the captivating Lake Balinsasayao and its twin lake, equally breathtaking Lake Danao. From your hotel, you will travel by land until you reach the foot of the lake where you will start your natures walk to the twin lakes. Getting there can be quite a challenge. Along the way, you will spot some travelers taking the Habal-habal (motorbike). Some parts of the road going to the mountain are rocky and undeveloped so it would be bumpy.
Before you headed back to your hotel, another great side trip is the famous Casaroro Falls. The most photographed body of water in the province is a beautiful gem, hidden in a deep ravine at the base of Mount Talinis. It’s one of those places that only the brave discover, due to the effort you have to exert to get there. Be prepared to walk and discover this hidden gem that only the few tries.
