In the city of Valencia, you can find Lake Apo, a crater lake in Barangay Guinoyoran. Located in a hilly area about 11 kilometers from the town center, this picturesque lake has been dubbed the cleanest and greenest inland body of water in Northern Mindanao. Locals and nature-trippers come here to enjoy the serene view, go on picnics and go rafting on wooden bamboo cottage rafts along the peaceful lake.
