Escape to Malubog Lake

Unluckily, we get to the lake with a not so good condition.

Cruising and fishing right at the heart of the mining capital of Cebu? There is a secluded place in the middle of the thick vegetation and peaceful community in Toledo City that one must discover.

The Malubog Dam, or more popularly referred to as Malubog Lake, is located in Brgy. Climaco of the component city. This man-made lake is still part of and owned by Atlas Mining Cooperation, now under Carmen Copper Corporation. It was finished in 1970 and designed to hold 15 million cubic meters of water. In
fact, it is the largest privately-owned reservoir in the country.

For just P2,500, one can rent the floating restaurant for the day which can accommodate up to 50 people. Guests can also grill their fresh catch or just order fresh tilapia from a fish pen located in the middle of the lake.

The local government of Toledo City is still in the process of improving the amenities of the lake: adding a resort hotel, pasalubong center and more floating restaurants in the future. For the moment, it is the perfect time to enjoy raw adventure in its most basic state.

(Visit Malubog Dam, coordinate with the city’s tourism office or call the Mayor’s office at 3225748 and 3225625.)

Rain is about to come...

Fishing is one of the exciting activity one can do here in the lake.

A good catch! Will be eating tilapia later.

While they were busy shooting, Densho shared a lighter moment with me.

While they were busy rolling, i took my chance to pose for a souvenir photo.

Saging, init pa, anyone?

Relaxing! I'd love to read a book down here....
