Great for all outdoor enthusiasts, backpackers, mountaineers, trail runners or just a seasoned climber. Lake Holon, as I describe it, is truly a Paradise. You can take two trails, Salacafe Trail and Kule Trail. This place is really really a must-visit for all tourists in Soccsksargen (SOX). You can experience a fusion of outdoor and cultural immersion in one. Lake... More

We included Lake Holon in our itinerary since this is tagged as the most cleanest lake in the Philippines. You must need to climb at least 4,000 masl before you see its beauty. Its camping site has a cooking area, washing area and CR with water so you take a bath after the hours-long trekking and dipping at Holon Lake.

Maybe my experience with lakes is limited but I have to say that this place is the best lake that accommodates campers. The hike is easy (if you have even a modest experience in hiking) and not dangerous at all. The receiving/registration area provides the following: -Parking area for vehicles -wooden trekking pole (for rent for P25. Proceeds go to... More

From Davao City, it took me and my travel buddy five hours to arrive at T' boli Sitio Salacafe. We registered at the tourism office and get on habal-habal (motorbike). It took another two hours to arrive at the start of the trek going to the lake. From there, we got our tour guide and porter. It took me one... More

Lake Holon is the MOST beautiful Lake in the Philippines. It is one of the natural treasures that SOCCSKSARGEN is blessed with. The journey to the Lake from the town of T'boli is in itself a fascinating experience having to embrace the current condition of the T'boli people. Lake Holon's beauty is impenetrable--from the serenity of its waters to the... More

The majestic view of the placid, serene lake at sunrise, as well as the stories of the T'boli people, will stay with me for a long time. Worth the habal-habal ride.
