Another pride of southern tagalog region are the lakes located in the province of Laguna. One of these water systems are the seven crater lakes located in San Pablo, Laguna. Not only that, these seven lakes are considered as mystical and legendary because of the stories spread in the area and even in some Filipino mystical books. And finally, I was able to witness and experience how gorgeous Pandin Lake is.

The area is surrounded by a brilliant green because of the trees and plants. The lake looks like a mirror from afar because of its crystal clear waters.

Pandin Lake
According to the stories spread in the area, Lake Pandin and Lake Yambo were both named after two lovers. Pandin (the girl) was a beautiful woman who was cursed not to step on the ground, unless something terrible might happen to someone. Yambo (the guy) her lover, didn't know about this curse and had made Pandin to step on the ground. After which, a terrible noise followed by the cracking grumble of the earth and a heavy downpour eventually converted the area into twin lakes separated from each other by a bare strip of land. - story from wikipedia.org
