PRIVATE TOUR - FROM MANILA
Trekking Pinatubo offers you a once in a life time
private tour to hike the picturesque Mount Pinatubo and view
the turquoise waters of the volcanic Crater Lake.
Depart from Metro Manila at dawn and drive roughly two and a half hours north in an
air-conditioned luxury minibus, here you will board a
old 4x4 Filipino Jeep and enjoy a thrilling drive across Crow Valley, a
moon-like terrain, with vast ash fields and rocky rivers. On the way
you will have the opportunity to stop at an Aeta Village for
an additional cost and enjoy interacting with one of the oldest
indigenous tribes in the Philippines. You will hike up
towards the summit passing through sandy cliffs and up a
single trail mountain path. The views of the Crater Lake are
breathtaking and worth every minute of the trek. Relax - you
have plenty of time, take in the incredible surroundings,
bask in the sun and enjoy the views of the lake before
returning to Sta. Juliana.
Back at Sta. Juliana - we will stop at Alvin's Place.
You have the option of having a toilet
break, shower, home cooked food, refreshments and resting your weary legs. For food we recommend you bring your own
packed breakfast and drinks to keep you hydrated for the
hike. After you have finished your hike you can stop at
Alvin's Place or a
restaurant along the route for lunch.

where you can experience the horrors faced by the U.S. and Filipino POW soldiers who were interned for much of WW2 at
