Travellers who seek 'off the beaten track' eco-adventures should head to Lake Sebu. Located on the island of Mindanao, the destination is surrounded by rolling hills and forested mountains, and is home to the T'boli: a highland tribe famous for their colourful costumes and intricate beadwork. Visitors will also encounter the Tasadays, who are a cave-dwelling people. The area's springs, waterfalls and natural caves are a delight. Thrill seekers should visit the Seven Falls Zipline too, as it's said to be the highest zipline in Southeast Asia. It takes travellers high above the region's thick jungle and beautiful waterfalls. Visitors who prefer to stay on the ground can choose from many wonderful hikes around the lake and to the falls. There are also many enticing boat trips, which allow travellers to explore the picturesque area and see how the locals live.
