Mount Pinatubo, Botolan

(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • First participation in the Japanese four (we married, man, man). SM Mall travel agency to pay private tours in one 4,400 pesos. In the morning, get up at 4 to local, headed to the Jeep stand, where the worst mood. A private tour and say while the Jeep two to 10 people shared. Moreover, we Filipinos grouped together six (including tomboy couple), 1 unfair that leaves only a couple of things in the men and women decided arbitrarily partitioned at the hotel reception in 5:05, Jeep and the middle-aged woman. Also full of complaints and, even though she can't speak English and Jeep round less than two hours if enjoy the listen again decided as it does not have. At private, and that sign up for Jeep, which everyone can enjoy the joy of this tour, is this to everyone was stunned. Tour but bad annoying Trek itself is wonderful, but hard to understand. Of poor foreigners tour even though tourism as only industrial area, an important resource that not only these matches should be improved as soon as possible.
