Information about Lake Holon
Photo by Lake Holon
Lake Holon is a crater lake in South Cotobato in the Mindanao region that is also known as the Crown Jewel of the South. Lake Holon is known for its scenic and relaxing view, which makes it one of the top emerging tourist spots in Mindanao and ecotourism destinations in the Philippines.
Holon means "deepwater" in the T'boli language. Travelers who love the outdoors will love it here as you can go trekking, swimming, fishing, enjoy the fish spa, horseback riding, and kayaking around the lake, in addition to interacting with the local T'boli community and learning about their culture.
Visitors to Lake Holon are recommended to stay overnight since it's not ideal for a day hike only. You can pitch camping tents since there are no accommodations here.
Best time to visit
The best time to hike to the lake is in the dry season, which usually starts in December and ends in the latter weeks of May.
