Lake Danao


Lake Danao is a guitar-shaped lake at an elevation of 2,100 feet above sea level. Formerly called
Lake Imelda, it was renamed Lake Danao National Park on February 3, 1998. It is the source of
potable water for at least seven towns in Eastern Leyte and of irrigation for rice lands in some
municipalities.

Sayahan Falls

Sayahan Falls is a newly discovered natural tourist spot in Ormoc. Getting there takes about 45
to 60 minutes of trek on rocky road, wild grasses, and trees, but the crystal clear and cold as ice
waterfalls would be worthwhile once you arrive.
