  • My first glimpse of Lake Lanao in 1997 was really memorable and nostalgic as that was my first travel to Mindanao as I was part of a delegation of Cordillerans who travelled down-south purposely to learn from the ARMM how they are coping up with their autonomous system of government.
  • A very beautiful and enchanting lake. The surrounding areas around Lake Lanao are cooler and very refreshing.
  • Lake lanao is one of the most famous lake in the philippines as its symbolizes every maranao(muslim tribe in southern philippines). Maranao was derived from Lanao(Ranao) "Ma" an adjective and "Ranao" the lake =people of the lake. Most of the maranao have a wonderful memories with this lake as majority of the lanao provinces municipalities are circling this lake. Katulong and Kadurog as what they called them are the most famous fish which can only be found here.
  • It's so beautlifull place i ever seen in my life, i call this little paradise of heaven..
