We left Boni-Mrt Manila 3am and arrived to our destination in Capaz Tarlac around 6-7am. Meet with our guide and took the 4×4 car. The road going to the trekking point is really bumpy but fun. Since it was Sunday, there are too many tourists who also visited Mt Pinatubo.
We trekked for 7kilometers under the heat of the sun while other tourists were brought directly with their 4×4 service in the foot of the mountain. So you have no idea how bitter we were to our tour organizer!
After 2-3 hours of walking in a deserted land (just kidding), finally we arrived at the foot of the mountain. Only 1 kilometer hiking which usually takes 15-25minutes.
At last, we arrived in the crater of Mt Pinatubo. It has a lovely view up-close. We just take our lunch and enjoy the view for couple of hours.
We have decided to leave around 1pm, so we can go back early before the rain pours. Another 8 kilometers of walking It was so tiring! I swear I won’t do it again.
