The provincial government of Negros Oriental has allocated P1-million for the installation of a zipline as an add-on to the tourism activities at Lake Balanan in Siaton, Negros Oriental.{{more}}

Gov. Roel Degamo, during a visit at Lake Balanan with Board Member Erwin Michael Macias, had seen the potential for an extreme sports activity in the lake. The governor admitted that extreme sports are now the latest activities for both local and foreign tourists.

Degamo has asked Macias to finalize the needed documents and the project design as he emphasized that it should minimize the disturbance to the trees and other natural growths in the lake.

Board Member Macias first introduced the idea to Governor Degamo as part of the plan to further improve the tourism industry of Negros Oriental.

Macias believes Lake Balanan is a good tourism destination because aside from the zipline there are other adventure sports activities that can be done in the lake like kayaking, trekking and mountain climbing, among others.

The lake also has hotel and restaurant and swimming pools and is managed by the Lake Balanan Development Authority, one of the pet projects of the late Gov. Emilio Macias II. (PNA) jfp/Maricar Aranas
