CORONation: The Island Loop Tour

This island loop tour is a must.
It is in this tour you'll get to see the place where Coron's trademark photo was taken.
Signature view as seen from the mountain where Kayangan Lake is.
By the way, ask your hotel/boatman if you need to get the entrance ticket to the sites in advance.

No. This is not Kayangan Lake yet... just the docking area.
You need to climb numerous steps to get there.

There's a small natural pond here.
Look how clear the water is.
Here it doesn't even look there's water.
The climbing begins. 
And at the peak, there's a must-stopover at the cave's entrance.
This is where you can take the Coron trademark photo (as shown in photo#1).
