Kayangan Lake – Bucket List 1


We were in Busuanga, Palawan, on a banca speeding towards Cayangan Lake on the island of Coron. Half an hour later found us in a lagoon at the foot of an imposing wall of limestone.

Then it’s down a jagged trail until we descend onto the shores of an emerald-colored sea. Nice, very nice. And the brackish seawater? It’s less than salty because of an an active underwater freshwater spring. Kayangan-view-2

Kayangan is, after all, a sea lake completely enclosed by limestone cliffs. Along the water’s edge, there’s a faint echo that gently envelopes you, like whispering waves inside a seashell. And the water? The color is alive… my photographs fail… this place is enchanted… put it on your bucket list… Enjoy.
