SIIT LAKE: The Heart-shaped Lake in Sulu

The month of February has always been tagged as the Month of Love especially on the 14th as the Valentine's Day where lovers and even those who are singles find most the value of Romantic Love.

Luckily, the Philippines is rich with destinations to fulfill the calling of LOVE both for lovers and romantic enthusiasts. Nevertheless, the Philippines has been included for the  countries to watch out for this year 2013 according to some well-famed Travel Sites such as Conde Nest Traveller and New York Times.

A great example to watch out for is the less populated province of Sulu in the Southern Part of the Philippines. This island seems like Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty find her romance.

The lake is somewhat like making a hit for Travel Destinations to watch out for in both Google + and Facebook as they share the photos and information to their walls.

The Heart-shaped Lake most commonly known as the Siit Lake is a naturally inspired lake with a shape of a heart symbol. This lake is located in a densely population of about a thousand people per km2 in Region 9, the province of Sulu with an average elevation of 33 meters above sea level.

Accordingly, the lake is geographically located at the coordinates of 5° 59' 0" North, 121° 13' 0" East. Local folks tells that the original name of this lake of romance is Si"it Lake with Diacritic sign (A glyph added to a letter or a basic glyph).

If you're coming from Cagayan de Oro City, it will take you about 468.7 km or 291.2 miles land travel. Now, that's a real long-ride journey.

All i can say about this magnificent lake is that it is indeed comparable to the Spitsbergen Lake, the largest Island in the Svalbard Archipelago.

You can compare the Siit Lake captured by Mr. Rafael Naranjo to the other heart-shaped Lake of Spitsbergen Island by Mr. Bruno Mazodier, a French Photographer by checking the photos below.

  1. Siit is a place with a very small population in the province of Sulu, Philippines which is located in the continent/region of Asia. Cities, towns and places near Siit include Sait Lake, Seit Lake, Panamao and Pananaw. This heart-shaped lake is really very beautiful place for tourism where I visited before bus tours dc. Its geographical organizes are 5° 59' 0" North, 121° 13' 0" East and its original name is Si”it Lake.
