7. Lake Danao
Lake Danao is one of the recommended lake destinations in the Philippines located in Leyte. It is a guitar-shaped lake covering an area of 148 hectares with a high altitude of 2,130 feet above sea level and that means the temperature is almost the same in Tagaytay. It is a quiet and a soothing place to relax. The best thing to do here is to have lunch with family or loved ones in a floating raft in the lake. Swimming, kayaking and canoeing are also fun things to do. There is also a viewing deck from atop to witness the beauty of the entire lake surrounded with mountain ranges.
📍 Lake Danao is 18 kilometers away from Ormoc City, Leyte.
