Hike to the top of Mt. Pinatubo and see its breathtaking crater lake in person through this day tour. This shared Mount Pinatubo day tour is a great experience for beginner climbers as Pinatubo has well-established trails that are generally easy to follow. The tour also comes with transfers from Manila, fees, permits, an event bag tag, and the service of a guide throughout the entire climb. Please note that this shared tour needs a minimum of four people to push through.

You have three options for the pick-up location: SM Mall of Asia in Pasay, Greenfield District in Mandaluyong, or Wendy's Quezon Avenue in Quezon City. Please note that each location has a different pick-up time, so make sure to choose the one that best fits your schedule. After you are picked up, you will make your way to the jump-off point in Botolan, Zambales.

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 Mount Pinatubo crater lake. The climb usually lasts around an hour or two but will differ depending on your pace. Your estimated time of arrival at the crater lake is 9:30 AM

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 lunch at your own expense 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. At around 4 PM, you'll head back to Manila. You can have dinner at your own expense along the way. Your estimated time of arrival in the city is 8 PM.
