Bicol Region Mountains

 

 

Lying in the peninsula that comprises Luzon island's southeast arm, Bicol Region's famous landmark is Mayon Volcano, the Philippine version of Japan's Mt. Fuji -- a perfect cone rising in all splendor. The main city of Legazpi, where Mayon's beauty can be seen, is a 12-hour trip from Manila. Aside from the famed Mayon, Mt. Isarog in Camarines Sur is a famous mountain, replete with various flora and fauna, as well as numerous waterfalls. Other mountains include Mt. Asog, Mt. Labo, and Mt. Bulusan, which has active volcanic activity. Bicolanos are known to have a taste for 'hot' foods like chili and peppers; their mountains are also 'hot', with Mayon being the most active volcano in the country. At present, climbing in Bulusan is not allowed, with its most recent eruption in 2007.
