Mt. Pinatubo

Mount Pinatubo is an active stratovolcano located on the island of Luzon, near the Philippine provinces of Zambales, Tarlac, and Pampanga.

My wife and her friends visited Mt Pinatubo last April 2012.

First they started at the pick-up point then riding the 4x4 vehicles going to the trekking point

It was a fun ride traveling thru dust, rocky road and streams.

Then trekking going to the crater-lake accompanied by the tour guides (included in the tour package)

Then they walk thru lahar sand, rocky streams and uphill dunes.

Do not forget to drink lots of water (quench your thirst - rehydrate)

Getting near already… Whoa, what a wonderful sight… The Pinatubo Crater-Lake…

Now, going down to the Crater-Lake

Swim anyone?? Do not over soak yourself on the lake because of sulfuric content…

Then boat ride going to the other side of the crater-lake where the water is much hotter because of volcanic activities underneath

The water bubbles in this area

This ends the tour… They will go back to the pick-up point where they started…

How to get there?
Get the Mt. Pinatubo packages…
