Lake Sebu is a town located 3000 above sea level. It has three lakes, Lake Sebu, Lake and Lake Lahitte Seloton. Lake Sebu was named by the largest of the three lakes. Criselda B. Dioso, a native Tboli who informed us about the town, said the lake of Lake Sebu Placid measures 354 hectares. The other two lakes are smaller, Lake Seloton is only 48 acres, while Lake Lahit is 24 hectares. Theresa local myth about how the Lake Sebu came to be. A while ago, a local princess had a dream to come to the mountain states of Sebu. Princess as a big leaf. When she opened a white frog jumped out with a stream of water that flooded the country and became the lake. From the sky she threw these pythons to the earth that formed the islands on the lake. And, for the princess to pass by the lake, signs her brother islands. Sebu The name actually came from the word for more Tboli or leaf.

There are a lot of things we can do at the Lake Sebu Resorts. If you are interested in adventure, extra challenge, swimming, fishing and relaxation we all can find it on Merl Garden Spring Resort also located at Lake Sebu, South Cotabato, Philippines. , Offers a quality and good services.

Merl's, as the locals often call it, is the first resort, you will find when you enter Lake Sebu. One of the cheapest resort in Lake Sebu, they offer various facilities good for group outings and activities. Zipline They are of different kinds, but is much shorter and a bit boring compared to the 7 ZipLine Falls, still in Lake Sebu. If you plan to stay overnight, Merl Garden also offers cabins for you to sleep in at the lowest price. They have two kinds of cottages, one that can house a maximum of 16 people (double-deck beds) and one for a small group of four.

<![CDATA[Boat in the Sky Experience]]>Wed, 08 Dec 2010 04:14:47 GMThttp://merlgarden.weebly.com/reviews/boat-in-the-sky-experiencePicture
We often hear about cable boats in Sentosa Singapore, Hong Kong and in other countries. But in my experience in Lake Sebu it’s different, it’s a cable boat. When I first saw it, I can’t help laughing and be amazed of how they put the boat in the sky. It’s so ironic, the boat supposes to be at the water, yet at Lake sebu resorts, its different, it’s in the sky.  

If you will ask how much it is, you can’t believe the price, it is so cheap like in other cable cars. From above you can see the whole view of the resort and how the plants and flowers bloom in different colors. You can also see the whole view of south cotabato and be astounded with big mountains surrounding you.  

                I really recommend that when you pass by South Cotabato, or Lake Sebu better drop by at Merl Garden Spring Resort, where you can also stay there and relax with its Spring Swimming Pool.


<![CDATA[Lake Sebu Zip Line Extra Challenge]]>Tue, 30 Nov 2010 07:54:27 GMThttp://merlgarden.weebly.com/reviews/lake-sebu-zip-line-extra-challenge             When we hear of extra challenge, we felt scared, scared, terrified, and some how excited. Mostly we like challenges, and we enjoy the feeling if we overcome it. Lots of extra challenges popping these days and often they can make your adrenaline goes up.

            I've tried the Zip Line extra challenge in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato Philippines. It was bright, sunny afternoon, I and my friends come in Lake Sebu Resorts. The Resort named Merl Garden Spring Resort. With my friends, we tried the Zip Line, which is one of the best and tourist attractions in their place. You could be in any position, and ride on a Zip Line. This may be seated, while their feet hang and the other is what they call Super Man position. You will use the harness or strap for your safety. Yes, I'm afraid of heights, but it's a different feeling if you overcome it. You want to yell at the top of your lungs while you are on your ride yet at the finish line, you'll be thankful that you are still alive.

            It was great to overcome fear. You must try it. Overcoming fear is facing the challenge and not by suppressing it.
