Bulusan Lake, Sorsogon

This part of Sorsogon is a bit far from our house in Albay so a night before going we agreed to wake up at 4am. Okay, I woke up a little past 4am, maybe 4:30am. We were all set before 5:00am then.

Barcelona Church

We passed by five municipalities such as Barcelona, Irosin, Juban and Casiguran and Bulusan. The views were breathtaking even before we reached the place. The iconic in-demand Barcelona sign along side is the 138 year old Stone Building Ruins and the town's Barcelona Church at the other side of the road.

We also passed by 2 long stretch of beach along the roads, a real clean river at the center of the houses of a barangay and some incredibly stunning mountain view to the point where we just want to settle for the day on the beach and just simply soak in the water. The thing is we were not able to do it because we didn't bring any picnic basket.

Bulusan Lake is located uphill, the wind breeze is cooler as it slowly damps my face. I am used to open the car window when there's less traffic or if I see a lot of trees when on a road trip in the province.

Since it's located at the top of the mountains known as the Sharp Peak and Hormahan, the temperature is slightly lower so it has a Baguio feel.

There is a small souvenir shop and a sari-sari store in this are where the toilet is also located.

As soon as you see the lake, there are kayaks available for a ride. If I remember it right, they said 500 for each kayak where it can accommodate 2 person but I think for 3 kayak boats, we got it for less. I wasn't sure since I'm not the one who paid. Lol.

I am not sure what else are the activity set here but this serene place is good for an hour or so down right fresh stare.
