Mt. Pinatubo 4×4 Off-Road and Crater Hike [Gallery Only]
It was last 2010 when I joined my cousins and their friends in the Land Cruiser Club of the Philippines to a 4×4 off-road and hiking experience to Mt. Pinatubo at Capas, Tarlac. Such a superb and sweet experience that was. Some pictures below of our trip.

Off-Road Mt. Pinatubo
It’s dirty, it’s rugged and it was awesome!
We camped overnight at Pinatubo where there is no shower, toilet, electricity and weak signal.
Woke up in the morning with our ass freezing cold.
The Trek to the Crater
As far as I remember, my cousins and I chose the longest and hardest trail. I don’t know why we did that.
After several hours…. whoop! We’re here!
“The climactic 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo destroyed the volcano’s original summit. In its place is a 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi) diameter caldera, the center of which is offset 1 kilometer northward from the pre-eruption summit. It was created from the collapse of the volcano’s summit on June 15, during the period of abundant large earthquakes in response to withdrawal of a large volume of magma from the reservoir beneath the volcano. By early September 1991, a shallow lake formed. The high precipitation rate of the area led to a rapid transition from a small and hot acid lake to a large lake with near-ambient temperature and pH.”
A memorable and joyful trip that will always stay in my heart. Naks!
