Lake Sebu, which is teeming with fish, and the two smaller neighbouring lakes Sultan and Lahit, are nestled into the southern Tiruray Highlands at an altitude of almost 300m. Around Lake Sebu live the tribespeople called the T'boli who live in almost total seclusion and produce rice, maize and sugar cane as well as breeding tilapia fish. They are famous for their brilliant costumes, intricate beadwork, creative woven baskets and traditional brass ornaments.
Try to arrange your schedule so as to include the colourful Saturday market, or, even better, the annual Lem-Lunay T'boli Festival (Helubong Festival) on the second Friday in November, which climaxes in wild horse fights the following Sunday.
