  • You will surely love this place if you are quite adventurous. You can do kayaking by yourself and paddle to and fro the lake and be notified that crocs inhabited the lake. That adds to the excitement....  more »

  • The place has a cool environment. Kayaking is great with their floating cottage. i really had a nice experience there.
  • Come and visit the beautiful Lake of Danao, fresh water, great ambience and awesome scenery...
  • Lake Danao is a natural fresh water lake situated in the middle of the forest reservation about 18 kilometers North East of Ormoc City. It is more than 2 kilometers long and about a kilometer wide (max). To enjoy the lake, the best thing to do is to rent a floating cottage (several are maintained by the community association) and pull yourselves (cottage and all) to the middle of the lake using ropes secured to the opposite ends of the lake. You can also try the treats prepared by the locals which include freshwater 'tahong' and edible fern. The freshwater 'tahong' is harvested by the locals from the lake itself and you have several options on how you would like it cooked like adobo style, hot & spicy, or as a broth, among others. The fern is best eaten as a salad. You can also try the guinataang baki (frog). Visitors are however cautioned that the lake is situated far from the city and the route is not that safe after dark. It would be best to go there early, enjoy the scenery, and leave for Ormoc City proper before 5 in the afternoon. :-)
  • Great lake, preserve its ecosystem
  • Leyte's jewel
