Lake Sebu Photo Tour on October 13 to 15

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Travel Foto Explorer presents yet another awesome travel adventure and photography workshop with the country’s top photographers, George Tapan (Master Travel Photographer) Ibarra Deri (Master Portrait Lensman), Rhonson Ng (Master Adventure Photographer) and Nikko Taytay (Multi-Awarded Photographer).

Join them in exploring and photographing the T’boli culture and Lake Sebu’s natural wonders.

Lake Sebu in South Cotabato, one of the top tourism destinations of Region 12, is famous for its three scenic natural lakes Lahit (24 hectares), Seloton (48 hectares) and Sebu (354 hectares). Lake Sebu is home to seven waterfalls, natural springs with preserved cultural communities of the town's colorful and gentle T'boli tribe. It is situated at an elevation of 1000 feet, so it's naturally cool up there. It is dubbed as the Summer Capital of Southern Philippines.

Two years ago, the provincial government of South Cotabato launched a P100-million tourism development project funded by the local government that is mainly focused on road development networks and the establishment of resort facilities for the town's seven waterfalls.

Cable and ziplines provide exhilarating adventures for those who are brave enough to zip from falls to falls while looking down at the breathtaking panorama. Beyond these developments, however, the place remains to be enchanting, serene and magical.
