Mount Pinatubo Day TourMarch 19th, 2012 | Posted by in For Cynth
Last Sunday, we had the opportunity to go up a Mountain, well, a volcano actually. The volcano erupted in 1991 which left a lot of people dead during that time and now the volcano’s fury is all spent and it has lain asleep for more than 10 years now and the crater has now become a great tourist spot in the Philippines.
If you are nature lover then you will surely love the place. It’s serene beauty is amazing and you will surely stand in awe of how beautiful nature can be. But be ready for a rough ride going up the mountain. We toughed it out at over an hour’s ride in a 4×4 van (I don’t know what else to call it :)) and a 3 hour trek from the drop off point to the crater. Being as unfit as I was, it was quite a journey for me, I almost gave up in the middle of it, but it was all worth it when I we reach the peak. I swam in the crater’s lake and as I said the beauty is breathtaking. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to commune with nature, just make sure you’re ready for a good long walk up the mountain and of course back down again.
