Mount Pinatubo, Botolan

4.2
#1 of 70 in Parks in Central Luzon Region
Responsible for one of the largest and most catastrophic volcanic eruptions in the 20th century, Mount Pinatubo casts a formidable silhouette over the Cabusilan mountain skyline. Known worldwide for its June 1991 eruption, the once devastated, debris-covered landscape now flourishes with new life, surrounded with valleys home to the indigenous Aeta tribe. Hike along 5.5 km (3.4 mi) of relatively flat trail through dramatic scenery to see the aquamarine hues of the crater lake, a shimmering gem at the foot of the active volcano. Bring plenty of water and a light picnic to enjoy by the lake’s edge, and consider hiring a guide to accompany you on the walk.

  • Just stunning view.. incredible that it erupted 30 years ago.. vegetation is coming back in a beautiful way :) definitely worth it. You have to book a tour, otherwise it's not allowed to pass the road. A 1 hour 4wd ride to get to the "parking spot" - this ride is trough rivers and ashes builded hills - just WoW!
  • Be ready to bring your hiking equiments. The terrain is a bit rocky and slippery so make sure to use the appropriate footwear. The view is so majestic, i recommend to bring a drone to fully appreciate its beauty. And btw, the 4x4 ride is a must try as well.
  • This place is very beautiful and nice. So pretty
  • There is no better designer than nature. This place is a perfect nature's archeticture, you will see the beauty of God's creation here.
  • Truly an amazing adventure for me and my friends! 😊 The view took my breath away. It was beautiful beyond my imagination. We took the longer trek going to the volcano and it was really worth all of it!
