Popular Mountain for Hiking

Mount Pinatubo, Zambales

 

In June 1991, The second largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century obliterated the summit of Mount Pinatubo. From 1745 meters tall, it now stands at 1486 meters. Located at the intersection of Zambales, Tarlac and Pampanga, the 1991 eruption was the first murmur after a 500 year silence. Billions of tons of volcanic matter spewed from its mouth, creating killer lahar flows in the plains, raining down the thick ash as far as Manila and decreasing the earth’s temperature by 0.5 degrees Celsius. If not for successful predictions and disaster management, thousands of people might have perished. It is now a biking and mountaineering destination. The eruption formed astonishing valleys of ash and a large caldera with a lake covering the terror within.

 

How to get there: Fly to Manila then take a bus to Capas, Tarlac. From there, hire a ride and make your way through the towns of Santa Juliana and Sitio Dapili.
