San Pablo's Seven Lakes: Bunot Lake

Brgy. Concepcion, San Pablo Laguna
by lakwatserong tatay

This is our first stop for our day tour, The Bunot Lake, is one of the 7 lakes of San Pablo, Laguna. This lake is known for its cultured tilapia and quite crowded of fishpens for Nilotica fingerlings. Bunot lake has a normal surface area of 30.5 hectares with a maximum depth of 23 meters.
Bunot Lake
Bunot lake is only 4.5 kms. from its city proper. You could have two options on viewing this lake, first is via Carmelita Road and the other one is Sabang Road, our tricycle brought us too Sabang Road. This lake is not quite popular, like the known "Sampaloc Lake", because most of its part, caters for fishpens who maybe owned by the local residence nearby this lake.

This lake is not quite hard to be found, because the marker is just place on highway going to Nagcarlan, Laguna, where most of the PUV goes through. So if, you do have your own vehicle, you could just ask for directions, on how to go to national road that goes to Nagcarlan. Laguna. But if you will do what we have did, you have 2 choices: 1st is via tricycle and 2nd is via Jeepney, just don't forget to inform the driver that you will getoff by Brgy. Concepcion.
The road we took
Here are some of our shots that we took while we were on this lake, we would like to thank on one of the local residence of Sabang rd., for letting us passby his property, and stay for a meantime on his kubo, back of his house, where we had a beautiful view of the lake. Im really sorry to forgot his name, infact i ask him, is their any place or part of this lake where we could possibly had a much wider view of it scenery. He said that there is an open space/lot in Carmelita road where you could possibly see the whole lake and also on later part of this road there is also a space where you could possibly stay for a while.

Here is one myth story that i've found about this lake:

In the course of their routine patrol work, some Spanish soldiers came upon a quiet lagoon and would want to know its name for record purposes. They inquired from a man husking coconut by the side of the lake. Thinking that the soldiers were asking for the native name of the coconut husk, the man replied: "Bunot". The Spanish soldiers left, muttering the word, "Bunot, Bunot", thinking that it was the name of their newly discovered lake. Based from

Bunot Lake is also a convenient site for family picnics. Specially if you do own a space/lot around this lake. It is a ideal place for swimming and relaxtion, as per the local residence that i've ask.
Bunot Lake is been Xplored
