Scaling Mount Pinatubo: A Trek Full of Adventure and Disappointments

Arriving at Santa Juliana

At the point when voyaging you will encounter a great deal of extraordinary and essential things. It is fun, elating and bold more often than not. However an alternate piece of voyaging which you can’t maintain a strategic distance from are the odd frustrations and arriving in a desperate predicament now and again. It’s not all sauce when voyaging and those minutes are simply piece of it. After our extraordinary escapade in the Philippino mountains, we got a new taste of simply that.

Mount Pinatubo

We cleared out Manila with the plan to climb the popular fountain of liquid magma, Mount Pinatubo at 300 meters off of the mount and covering enormous parts of the region in powder. With a huge and completely clear pit lake at the top, this appeared like an alternate extraordinary experience for the three of us. Nonetheless, it soon got to be clear that it would be anything besides that.

Getting to the little town of Santa Juliana, the hop off point for the majority of the outings up the spring of gushing lava, took us as of now a day. When we arrived and weighed in at one of the two spots who sort out the visits, we discovered that the costs were higher than we had anticipated. However we were there so what to do? It took us about an hour to get to the beginning stage of our trek. The drive was pleasant, taking us over a moon like scene with slopes of powder around, very nearly no vegetation and crosswise over little streams. The landscape was exceptionally unique and the rough terrain driving which was enjoyable.

Reaching the Summit

We got off amidst no place and began our trek up to the top. What began calm energizing, soon got to be somewhat average as we simply kept on strolling down the jeep trail that lead us straight to the base camp, just 1km from the top. The walk was not in the least difficult and not fascinating. We made it to the camp in under 2 hours. On top of that our aide made an awful showing. Not just didn’t he clarify anything, he likewise simply ventured out in front of Dolf and I. At a certain point him and the two others of our gathering where simply totally far away. Really awful controlling as I would see it.

We then made it up the top which took an additional twenty minutes. We landed at the cavity which was beautiful however not an astounding sight like we had amid our last sidetrip. We strolled around the hole a tad bit, consumed our stuffed lunch, snapped a couple of pictures and after that left once more. With everything taken into account, the trek was fair and for that cost unquestionably an excess of cash. The administrations we got were certainly not justified regardless of the venture.

Disappointments at CWC

I was totally knackered when we touched base in Naga. It didn’t stop here however. We had reserved a spot for the CWC and when we weighed in, we figured out that the link had tore the day preceding. Nobody had the capacity let us know when it would run again however the most irritating certainty was, that we were not told about the circumstances when we reserved the spot. Needing to manage the circumstances, despite everything we weighed in with trusts for the recreation center to run again soon.

The recreation center at last began to work at twelve the following day, so at that point we had effectively squandered one and a half day. We got a smidgen of a pay for the burdens however when requesting free rental for the span of our stay, they were really uncooperative. Furthermore when all is said in done we didn’t feel to be dealt with well and not so much welcome. The recreation center itself is additionally a long way from being one of the best on the planet with torn up and not decently kept up obstructions and individual, that didn’t appear to be the most qualified. We exited following two and half days with just a half day of riding because of the repairs. The stay there left a really sharp taste and we trusted that fortunes would be on our side again after those days of bafflements.


I can say that the last few days were fairly unrewarding with bunches of time and cash we squandered. Being on a limited plan considering those two monetary standards, it exacerbated the encounters even. At the same time as said in the recent past, those minutes simply have a place with going as the various incredible encounters which most likely compensate for the lion’s share. The mystery is simply not to concentrate excessively hard on those encounters and proceed onward rapidly.
