Mt. Pinatubo is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Located between the provinces Pampanga, Zambales and Tarlac, Mt. Pinatubo is home to the Aeta people and boasts of a landscape filled unique lahar formations and boulders. The gem of Mt. Pinatubo, however, is its crater lake, which lies at the end of a 2.5-hour trek. The color of the water changes from blue green to deep blue depending on the season.

Long after its historic 1991 eruption, Mt. Pinatubo has become a place worth traveling to, most especially for people yearning for adventure. Get ready to discover one of the Philippine’s most beautiful destinations with us!
