5. Mount Isarog
Mount Isarog is one of the renowned tourist spots in Camarines Sur, a potentially active volcano standing 1,976 meters above sea level. The mountain and its surroundings is a protected area composed of grasslands, thick and mossy forests which serves as a habitat of some endemic animals. The summit of the mountain offers a “sea of clouds” in the early morning, a panoramic view of Bicol Peninsula and Mount Mayon. The trek going to the mountain starts from an easy trail to challenging terrains approaching the campsites. A 2-day itinerary is recommended.

The 1,600-hectare lake is known as breeding ground of sinarapan, the world’s smallest fish that can be harvested commercially. Boating is the best thing to do in the lake but visitors may also walk around and mesmerize the beauty of the lake, forestland and looming mountains. The nearby forestland is a home of different species of birds including woodpeckers and parrots. Observant tourists may encounter flying lizards or monkey sightings.
