My first experience is kayaking. I have learned how to paddle the kayak. We rented it for 150 an hour. We only stay here for an hour since we requested from the jeepney driver to wait for us before going back to Ormoc.

Pleasant ride to this like in the mountains with cool air and cold beverage to escape the hot sun. I recommend this place.

Since it was a weekend when we visited, there were few passengers in the terminal going to Lake Danao. So we rented a jeep from the terminal for 1000. It was a reasonable price since it was for the ride to and from Lake Danao....More
