Available: Daily; Departs at 4:00am. (The tour is subject to weather conditions and best done during the dry/summer season, from December to May)
Approximately eight (8) to ten (10) hours.
Tour departs from and returns to guest hotel.
Early morning pick up and drive for approximately one and a half hours to Pampanga where your local guide will meet you. After a short briefing and signing of waivers, transfer to a 4x4 vehicle for a 2-hour ride amidst lahar cliffs until you reach the foot hills of the mountain where you begin your almost 2–hour trek up the slopes until you reach the crater rim. At a vantage point at the rim of the crater, enjoy panoramic views of the crater-lake and the surrounding mountains. You may opt to go closer to the lake by navigating the steep flight of steps leading down it (swimming at the lake is strictly prohibited). Spend time at the crater (with packed lunch) before trekking down to the base area and return to the home stay to freshen up. Travel back to Manila by mid-afternoon.
Children ages 11 and below are discouraged from joining the tour.
Wear light, comfortable clothing and foot wear, sun screen, extra clothing, and a hat. Bring along a light back pack to put in your water bottle and other essentials.
