If you love adventure, you can discover several tourist spots in the country. One of these wonderful places is the Lake Holon in South Cotabato, known as the Crown Jewel of the South.
With the help of organizers Inday Langan and Jetro Castro, it’s not difficult to visit this breathtaking place. Lake Holon is an 18-kilometer trail armed with your walking stick — a long trudge indeed! But at the same time it’s a great realization in life that you can even witness with your bare eyes the wonders of God’s creation beyond man’s imagination.
It’s a time to reflect on one’s self as what one of the excited campers, Helen Rivero, would describe it. “A time to be away from this busy, complicated, mundane life.” Her group had an opportune time to see this very impressive place last April 13 and 14 during the holy week season. Just perfectly imagine how great and awesome is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that He has given us such beautiful place to take care as well.
Among the brave men and women who successfully made it during the two-day trekking include Helen Rivero, Michael Jay F. Canoy, Roland Deogrades, Elsie Fegarido, Maila Jane Aseneta, Jem Marie Irog-irog, Marco Kho, Ella Sila, Stephanie Irog-irog, Allan Nala, Dominique Carillo, Cherisse Adlawan, Jesmar Lozada, Barbie Villaplaza, Maria Fe Legaspo, Sheila Mae Alasio, Lovely Joy Tabelin, Reymark Sanchez, Reyland Cabiling, Romeo Nano, Princess Penarubia, Ariel Asaneta, Elenita Quinones, Xyril Beltran, Rodrigo Bontog, Xyril Grace Bete, Bryan Sugsi, Malcolm Francis Asanete, Lady Unezalyn Lasan, Domenic Japos and Jiol Derrota.
