Lake Apo, Valencia , Bukidnon


Lake Apo. Guinoyoran, Valencia City

Situated at Sitio Lake Apo. The lake can be reached either from Valencia City or Dologon, Maramag, Bukidnon. We chose the latter. coming from BUSCO, Dologon is our nearest access road. Dropped off the junction road to Kisanday and tried to haggle for our habal habal fare.


My sister trying to haggle.

we rode a HABAL HABAL. yes the three of us. HAHA
Imagine the situation. can you picture it out?

Anyway, the road leading to sitio Lake Apo is unpaved, so expect a bumpy ride all through out your travel. Travel time is about 10-15minutes. and 40php/fare one way.

You may text our driver Kuya Ricky 09061834675

Commuters notes:
try to haggle for the fare.
go by groups so you can lessen on some expenses
bring your own food and water
very important:  Better negotiate with the habal habal driver, and tell him to pick you up. There are no other public vehicle coming from Sitio Lake Apo to Dologon junction. If there is, it might be scarce. Take my advice to save your time and effort. xx



Parking Area



You can install your tents and do campings here.


this is what clean and green environment looks like!!
Lake Apo is dubbed as the cleanest inland body of water in Region X.
Its a circular lake, Approximately 24 hectares (area) and 85m in depth.


There are floating kubos (huts) that you can rent.
rates are: 200/3hours *peak season
if there are no other visitors who'll rent the kubo, you can rent the kubo for a day, no additional. Unluckily for us, there were too many visitors so we had to pay another 200 to extend our Kubo usage.



Our HUUUUGE  Floating Kubo for the day. not bad anyway, considering we're only three.


360 degrees view! click the videoo

Let the fun time begins! Go go go!

You have to pull the rope for you to move and go to the middle of the lake or to the farthest side.



Our kubo also have a grilling station (the bukid way)


Calm and unruffled


Our neighbor for the day, having a party. Must be a birthday celebration. Heyy care to throw some lechon, neighbors? haha

We spent our day dipping in this very serene lake ala "Jennifer's body" (megan fox' scene on the lake)


feeling baywalk bodies lang.


Almost sunset photo



Our habal habal driver picked us up around 5.30pm.

Its definitely a fun day! I really recommend Lake Apo to anyone visiting Bukidnon.

wanna know why its MORE fun in Bukidnon? :P


bagon bagon (A truck which carries a load of sugarcane) hitch ride!!! ohyeah! haha


Looks like someone just embarked hazing! Just kidding, haha this is my lovely souvenir from our Lake Apo trip. I got stumbled in the rope, dragging me from the bamboo floors down to the water. What an unlucky girl haha I can't help but just laugh haha Im so clumsy! but it did hurt like hella. I had fun nonetheless.
