“Such a serene and wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

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, we didn't expect to see such a serene and wonderful place. The place had been protected well by the communities surrounding dueto their vigilance in ensuring the the water in the lake remains clean, the forest that surround the lake provide the ecosystem for a host of various flora and fauna.

There are various activities that can be done at the Bulusan Volcano Natural Park. Canoeing, Trail hiking, Swimming, and even just to take in the fresh cool air is really worth the visit. Whether you are a nature lover or simply looking for a quiet place to unwinnd and recollect yourself, Bulusan is a place you could consider. Just be ready for the long trip.

We only stayed overnight in Bulusan in a place called Balay-Buhay sa Uma which is also a great place in itself.
