we've made our reservation before we come to the place, because of the balsa and food serving. its a great place for relieving your stress. the food serve as typical filipino recipe. inihaw na liempo and tilapia, itlog na pula with tomatoes, fresh buko and bottled water. you will trek a little before you reach the lake. about 15mins walk,...

Pro: Food was good - typical Filipino home cooked food at its best!! (If your tummy is prone to stomach upsets or you're picky with your food there are no restaurants around so eat before going here or bring your own food. Don't rate it just because.) You can have them prepare your food for you for a fee. They... More

Lunch is served with raft ride at 360 per head but I ordered additional inihaw na liempo so 400 per head..Delicious and one of a kind experience .The lake is so beautiful.

Pandin Lake, although tricky to find, is a great place to have a picnic lunch, lake tour, and swim. If you're visiting during the high season it's best to have a reservation as there are only 12 boats available and the activity can take 3-4 hours, depending on your group. Around 8 people can fit comfortably on each raft. The... More

Get the onboard meal if you're hungry but if you're full, it'll still be fine without the meals. Got coconut drinks. We got off and trekked a bit to the neighboring Yambo lake. We just peeked over the trees, really, but the trek was good exercise. A swim would've been fun but my parents weren't up to it.

Best to make reservations beforehand due to many visitors. Our contact person, Aling Siony (Tel# 0929-9789565) prepared everything from our food to "balsa"/ bamboo boat. We came very early around 6:30am. We rode a rented van. There's a parking lot (P50 fee) beside the road near Lake Pandin. We walked around 15 minutes uphill. The pathway becomes muddy if it... More

We went here with no idea of what is in there. Just by walking from the parking to the lake is already a good challenge. It's amazing that the weather changes every minute so expect to get wet! I recommend that you wear hiking shoes and bring a water resistant jacket and water proof bag and extra clothes. Upon reaching... More

Very calming place. So beautiful. Two thumbs up. I and my travel buddy planned to visit Lake Pandin. We commuted from Alabang via bus to San Pablo as early as 4AM because we would like to have chance getting into the lake and owned the place for ourselves (*wink) and it happened. With a few meters of walk, we got... More

Essentially, you pay to ride a raft across to the other side of the lake where you can swim, eat, and hike a bit to get a view of the other lake. Chill and relaxing, but if you frequently visit nature spots, you may not find this too special. It's a popular spot so be prepared to spend some waiting... More

Except for the new parking spots that is slightly far from the entrance everything else is great. A 10 to 15 minute walk from the entrance which could be taxing to seniors, specially the last 100 ft. Before the lake. Once you are there, look for the person you made reservations to, which by the way is highly recommended or... More
