Have you been to Bantaawan Lake? It’s a small lake along the northeastern slopes of Mt. Balatukan located within the jurisdiction of Gingoog City. Having a unique environmental setting of mossy forest where trees seem to bow towards the center of the lake, Bantaawan Lake is like a mystic place out of a fairy tale.
Lake Bantaawan is approximately 6 kilometers southwest of Barangay Bantaawan Proper which is 9 kilometers from the National Highway. See map below. At right is the image from Google Earth.
There is no road in going to the lake which is surrounded by untouched lush vegetation. Trekkers estimate an 8-hour walk from the barangay proper. Watch this video below courtesy of AdBENtures.
