Sorsogon Bulusan 342
Bulusan Lake is the tranquil scene that welcomes nature lovers at the Bulusan Volcano Natural Park. Its deep emerald waters is the first to catch attention; a glassy surface mirroring the nature that surrounds it. The dense rainforest around its perimeter is the next one to impress where upon giving it more attention reveals the diversity of its vegetation. Then finally, near the side of the lake are bursts of color in the form of kayaks, canoes, and boat bicycles. This is the postcardable image that earned Bulusan Lake the title "Switzerland of the Orient", and yet this impressive masterpiece is just the opening act to the many natural wonders sprawled across 3,673 hectares of protected area.
