Lake Danao


This weekend I popped down to Ormoc to visit a couple of friends, and try to say goodbye to as many people as possible before I leave in a couple of weeks’ time. We hired a multicab (mini van/bus type thing) to take us up to Lake Danao, about 45mins away, which was quite high up in the hills, and utterly beautiful.

Once at the lake, you can hire a floating hut for the bargain price of £2 an hour, which you can haul on ropes out into the centre of the lake.

Once there, you can picnic and swim in total peace and quiet, save for a few other families and groups on neighbouring huts. The local women also sell delicious delicacies, like enormous freshwater mussels from the lake, which you can have fried or cooked in different ways, as well as a fresh fern salad, lightly blanched and served with vinegar – surprisingly delicious, and my first time eating ferns!
