Kayangan Lake: Heavenly Waters in Coron, Palawan

Kayangan Lake is known to be the cleanest lake there is in the country. The massive blue waters and the stunning rock formations make up most of the views in this part of Coron. Accessible via boat, we toured around the area with Amika Travel and Tours, inclusive of the registration fees and boat transfers.

August 12, 2017 – Saturday morning. We got up early so that we may be first to go to Kayangan Lake. The sun was scorching high as we navigated the waters in complete amazement of Palawan’s majestic features. It was a heavenly travel by the pristine turquoise seas.

All tourists were advised to wear a life jacket while at the premises of the attraction, regardless of the tourist knows how to swim or not.

After docking, we walked onto a wooden pathway by the side of the hilly rocks. At the foot of the trailhead are the registration area and a sari-sari store. I would advise tourist to buy a bottle of water first before starting the hike. Getting to the lake was not so easy. We climbed up an approximately 100-step stairs that lead to the viewing deck where the breathtaking scenery awaits.

There was also a small opening to a bat cave that can be explored. Although it looked exciting, my friends and I were more focused on seeing the lake uncrowded so we went ahead.

The area where the lake was nestled is surrounded by rising mountain walls covered in thick lush. It took 10 minutes, or so I think, of going down the stairs to reach the lake itself. By this time, there were already many people enjoying their time in the pond.

The place is gorgeous. The view underwater was as alluring as the view above waters! It was a lovely dip into the freshwater. The wooden pathway served as the resting place for some who didn’t swim. For us, we left our bags where in our line of sight and just jumped!

It’s no secret that I’m not a skilled swimmer. However, with the help of our tour guide Kuya Jonel who dives and captures photos so gracefully, I was able to get awesome shots as if I was a mermaid!

As much as we wanted to stay longer, the place was getting more and more crowded as time went by. I bid the place goodbye with a heavy heart. Kayangan Lake is a must-see whenever visiting Coron. I’d definitely go back here when I return to this side of Palawan!
