Have fiery adventures this year.
January 23, 2020
Visiting volcanoes might be one of the most adventurous activities you can try this year. With the recent eruption of the Taal Volcano, we witnessed an unforgettable but visually striking disaster that affected many areas in Luzon. However, these volcanoes will always be an important part of our natural wonders and they undoubtedly support tourism in the province(s) they are in. With that, here are some of the most amazing volcanoes that our country has to offer.
This volcano is known for its perfect cone-shaped slope and is located in the province of Albay in Bicol Region. Near the Mayon Volcano, you can do some exciting activities such as trying out the Mayon Skydrive ATV Adventure as well as the Bicol Adventure ATV or visiting Lignon Hill and Cagsawa Ruins Park.
One of the most famous volcanoes in the country is Mt. Pinatubo, which erupted on June 1991. In the years that followed, this stratovolcano has become popular among hikers. You can experience the adventure of a lifetime when you go through bumpy roads towards the crater. Mt. Pinatubo also happens to be located in Zambales where you can enjoy some exciting activities like trekking in Anawangin Cove and Capones Island.
The eruption of Taal Volcano last January 13 caught everyone by surprise, even though volcanic activities were already being recorded in 2019. The complex volcano is located in Batangas, which is known for its beaches and delectable cuisine. Tagaytay is also a convenient option if you want an accessible scenic view.
