    1. Hi, Jhunz. Tent pitching is available at P750.00. But for that purpose, you may contact Dr. Almer Alfonso at 0977-398-3652/ 09067772498.

      ANOTHER TIP: If you just want to do photoshoot, you may visit the lake during daytime. You can roam around and do it for free.

  15. Hi po pwede po bang pumunta sa lake apo kahit wlang tour guide since we already know the exact address? And kaya po ba ng 1day tour ang route na lake apo, RR family spring resort and dahilayan adventure park? Thank you po & GOD BLESS.

    1. Yes, no need for tour guide. Pwede nyo i-daytour ang lake apo at RR. but dahilayan, i think, needs another day considering travel time from RR or Lake Apo.
