Nag-aso Boiling Lake, Manito


Photos by Byahero

The ‘boiling lake’ of Nag-Aso in the town of Manito is another off-the-beaten-path wonder in Albay. This 3-hectare lake is fed by a hot spring that has a temperature that can reach 100° Celsius, hot enough to boil eggs within 10 minutes. It is located in the boundary of Barangay Balabagon and Hulugan, nestled between a ridge and the Albay Gulf.

The name comes from the Bicolano word, which means ‘steaming’ or ‘smoking’. Because of the extreme temperatures of the lake, its heat is used to help power a 160-MW geothermal plant. During high tide, the lake is submerged by seawater from the Albay Gulf, but the bubbling, boiling water is still visible.
