    I heard it has now become a big lake from all the rain water. Anyone been there and maybe show us some pics. In my province of Oriental Negros in the city of Canlaon, they have the Canlaon Volcano which is the highet peak in central Visayas. It is now open to trekkers with a 500 pesos to hire a guide /day. I plan to visit this place when i get to go home.

    been there. If you could bring a 4x4 then by all means do so. If not, prepare for a 26 km hike....

    Didn't get all the way up to the top but I was in a convoy of off-road monsters when it started raining at the summit. That river went up pretty fast and the flow was pretty fast too by the time we got out of it. Watch the rain if you go up via the river. But it's very interesting.
