5 Stunning Lakes in Mindanao

Still waters run deep.

Did you know that in the Philippines alone, you can find over 100 lakes of varying sizes?

These natural inland bodies of water surrounded by land serve an important role in the ecosystem. They can sustain a healthy balance of aquatic life, provide a means of recreation and help support the socio-economic needs of communities residing nearby.

But with the rapid population growth and urbanization in many areas, many of our lakes are threatened by exploitation and overdevelopment. Here are just five beautiful lakes you can find in Mindanao that hopefully can be preserved so future generations can enjoy them.
