Explore the natural wonder of Mt. Pinatubo on a day trek that will surely mesmerize you with its colossal mountainside. The Pinatubo adventure starts with an hour long yet exciting 4X4 off-road ride to trailhead. Then a 2.5-hr hike trail to the crater lake summit that is fairly easy with flat ground that requires a bit of river crossing, rock scrambling and assaults perfect for beginners. It can only get exhausting if Mr. Sun is out with its fiery heat. Would be best to go on cloudy days to avoid sunburns.
Summit Crater Lake! The lake was once open for visitors to swim and small boats to row but it is now prohibited. So we can only enjoy the scenic landscape. A true beauty in disaster indeed!
Pictures alone can tell you how minuscule we are compare to these vast terrain. It definitely feels like you are on a different planet.

- Bring at least 4L of water. Better be hydrated than sorry.
- Bring extra clothes
- Sunblock, sunblock, sunblock! Clothe your whole body to protect your skin from the scorching heat.
- Sandals is okay but expect sandal-tan-lines after haha. Better use enclosed shoes, expect it to be submerged in water though because of the river crossing.
