CALIRAYA LAKE

Caliraya Lake was created in late 1930 by a US Army engineer by flooding the Cavinti valley of the Sierra Madre to generate hydroelectric power for Manila.

 In the early 1990s, commercial development took place. Water from Laguna De Bay is carried by big pipes to the valley. The area of the valley was dug some 50 meters deep and layered with industrial plastic to hold most of the water.

 Large bass were introduced into the waters, which make the lake ideal for game fishing.

Then, pine trees and other local trees were planted to replace the coconut trees that once dominated the harsh environment atop the valley. The pines now consist most of the lush greens of the rolling verdant hills of the mountain. Also, numerous islands of various shapes and sizes have been formed during the creation of the dam lake.

The strong mountain breeze comes from the Sierra Madre mountain ranges and distant Mount Banahaw. On a windy day, you could smell the pines that would remind of how Baguio used to smell before the small city became highly urbanized.

The Caliraya Resort Club offers a variety of water sports in the area. There’s  boating, wind surfing, game fishing and water skiing.

 Aside from water sports, an exotic restaurant that serves meat from snakes, lizards and even frogs is also a must-try for tourists coming here.
