Dubbed as the "Switzerland of the Orient", Bulusan Lake lies at the heart of
the National Park which covers a land area of 3,672 hectares. Getting there
from the capital, Sorsogon City, one has two options. First would be to take
the Maharlika Highway up to the town of Irosin passing thru the towns of
Casiguran and Juban. From Irosin it is another ten kilometers to the site.
The other is passing thru a very scenic route overlooking the Pacific Ocean
(San Bernardino Strait) thru the towns of Gubat, Barcelona and the centro
of Bulusan town. The road is not that good although some portions are now
being paved and concreted. From the main road which connects the towns of
Bulusan and Irosin is a two kilometer path which is very accessible even for
big buses that leads to the lake itself. As one enters the dilapidated gate
to the lake one is welcomed by the view of Bulusan volcano at the background
and the lake at the foreground. Thanks to the absence of development, the
area retains much of its pristine environment as one can experience while
taking a 45 minute walk around the lake.
