Viaje Del Sol: Lake Pandin and Lake Yambo

If you’ve been reading this blog for quite some time now, you know that I’ve been meaning to visit Lake Pandin since last year. Yesterday, I visited my grandmother and fortunately she has no plan to go to supermarket so I informed my husband to text Ate Siony to ask for directions so we can visit Lake Pandin. But no one replied, so I told him to call the number and he said I gave him the wrong number. I checked his phone and told him that he texted and called the wrong number. #sayang oras. We called Ate Siony and asked how to get to Lake Pandin and off we went. We left Victoria, Laguna at 2:20PM and we reached Lake Pandin at 3:30PM including the 15-20 minutes trekking.


Finally, I was able to visit Lake Pandin.





We visited Lake Yambu too, about 3 minutes of trekking. It is not advisable to senior citizens and kids but since we want to check the other side, my husband carried my son. =)


Lake Yambu
When we went back to our raft, they gave us fresh buko juice. But if you want to avail their food package, you have to call them in advance. (grilled tilapia, shrimp, fern salad and banana).


Whether you are a good swimmer or not, you have to wear lifevest if you want to swim. Surprisingly, my son did not want to swim and he only stayed for two minutes. The place where we stayed is “75 feet deep” and other part of the lake is 180 feet deep. We left around 5PM. #bitin



If you want to unwind and relax, this is the best place for you. We will definitely go back again and avail food package.


Lake Pandin Rates and Contact

My son (3 yrs old) is free of charge.

  3. parang Loboc River ng Bohol, but I think mas malinis pa to.. medyo disappointed ako sa loboc river,ang labo ng water nung nandun kami, masyadong mataas expectation ko kasi nun.

    75 feet deep? holy cow!!! and pinayagan mo si ethan na magswim???? lakas ng loob ni manong ariel ha?! ...(nagalit daw)... hahaha!

    1. malalim nga kaya siguro takot din si ethan kasi hindi niya makita yung paa niya. hehe! swimmer naman si daddy niya kaya alam ko safe si ethan. =)

      mas ok ito sa loboc kasi solo mo yung raft and mas mahaba ang stay mo. pag hindi peak season kahit buong araw ka pero pag peak season, 2-3hrs lang pwede kasi 7 raft lang meron sila.

    2. i know how to swim too.. but had experience that i almost drown when i tried to rescue a kid... pareho na kami malulunod, buti may nakakita... I'm not saying i don't trust your hubby, but please don't let them take the risk.... safety first, ok?
