Mt. Pinatubo Day Tour with Tour Guide | Toblerone Hills, Crater Lake
Hike to the top of Mt. Pinatubo and see its breathtaking crater lake in person through this day tour. This is a great experience for beginner climbers as Pinatubo has well-established trails that are generally easy to follow. The tour also comes with the service of a guide throughout the entire climb.
To make sure you don't spend too much time under the heat of the sun, you'll start climbing after meeting up with your guide at the Capas jump-off point at 4:30 AM. If you need transportation, you can book additional roundtrip transfers from Manila or Clark for a fee. After registering at the jump-off point, you'll hop in a 4x4 jeep and make your way across the sandy terrain surrounding the base of the mountain.
On the way to the foot of the mountain, you'll pass by a group of hills that resemble the famous Toblerone chocolate and are aptly called the Toblerone Hills. You can stop here to take a few photos as well. Then when you reach the mountain, you'll begin the ascent to the crater lake. The climb usually lasts around an hour but will differ depending on your pace.
Once you reach the entrance to the lake, you'll be rewarded with a view of the majestic caldera set against alpine-like rock formations. Feel free to rest here and take photos of the beautiful scenery after your climb. You can also enjoy your own snacks here before preparing to return to the base of the mountain. After your descent, you'll take the 4x4 jeep back to the jump-off point.
