Explore the most popular mountaineering destination in the Philippines. Whether it’s your first time trekking or you want to have an amazing addition to your list of hiking destinations, Mt. Pinatubo is a perfect trail with exciting trails and picturesque views.

Nestled at the tripoint boundary of Zambales, Tarlac, and Pampanga, Mt. Pinatubo is an active volcano that has a towering range of 4,757 feet high. The famous volcano gained its popularity in its 1991 eruption. Today, it has become one of the most popular travel destinations in the country. Despite its tragic past, the beauty of Mt. Pinatubo is a sight to behold. 

Mt. Pinatubo was considered as the second largest and one of the most catastrophic volcanic eruptions of the 20th century causing deaths of a thousand. The 1991 volcanic eruption has a Volcanic Explosivity Index of 6 which altered its landscape and discharged ashes. It covered the entire Luzon and even reached neighboring Asian countries like Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand. 

Your tour will start once you are picked up from your hotel in Manila or Makati. It is best advised to start your trip to Mt. Pinatubo as early as possible to reach the cutoff time. With strict regulation, no one is allowed to go hiking beyond the said time. Once you arrive, a 4x4 jeep ride awaits you for a bumpy but fun ride on the dusty lahar fields that serve as the result of the 1991 violent volcanic eruption. The jeep ride will drop you off to where the hiking trail starts. Expect some river crossings, so it's best if you're wearing proper trekking shoes. Bring water and keep hydrated. Be reminded that swimming at the Crater Lake remains prohibited.

Mt. Pinatubo is being monitored for safety precautions. Hiking and trekking tours can be canceled for varied reasons such as heavy rain, volcanic activity, and military exercises.
