This was announced by the office of Mayor Michael Guysayko instructing the Bulusan Eco-Tourism Center to anticipate the incoming visitors and to prepare regulations for the eco-adventures and its regulatory fees.

The Lake lies at the heart of the Bulusan Volcano Natural Park with an area of 3,672 hectares with a shore length of 2.2 kilometers and 360 meters above sea level. Its pristine watercolor of green is due to its algae giving abundance to fishes and other organisms habiting the lake.

According to Mayor Guysayko the natural park was redeveloped by congressional and provincial funds making it a leisure and adventure tourist site for those escaping the crowded city life. It now offers kayaking and mountain trekking but fishing is not allowed. Visitors are also advised of proper trash disposal to maintain the sound environment of the natural park.
