The place is quite hard to get to. From T'boli alone, you need to ride a risky motorcycle for an hour to reach the starting point of the hike. That ride was already exciting enough, especially if you guys decide to do it with three people on one motorcycle, plus the driver. I definitely think it was not completely safe.... More

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

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
