DIY Travel Guide to MT PINATUBO Itinerary and Expenses (Updated 2018)

Mt Pinatubo last eruption was way back 1991. It is studied in the Philippine history for its sulfuric haze that affected almost the whole world.

  • Currently, it had been known as a tourist spot for people who want a quick adventure after a tiring weekdays work.
  • After seeing lots of posts about it, we became very intrigue about the view in actual of the mountain which had the second most intense eruption known in the 20th century.

HOW TO GO TO MT PINATUBO:

Friday around 6pm, our friends and us (a group of 5) decided to meet at Victory Liner bus station along EDSA. No reservations, we searched for a bus that passes by CAPAZ PUBLIC MARKET, Buses going to:

  • Baguio
  • Tarlac
  • Dagupan
  • Pangasinan

Told the bus driver to drop us off at Capaz.

Its dinner time when we arrived at Capaz, rode a tricycle to an overnight accommodation to rest for the night.

After an hour of very cold and dark a tricycle ride, we finally arrived at a place quite famous to travelers like us, it was also suggested by our trusted drivers.

We had a little lunch while enjoying the beautiful view of the crater. The wind here was very cold and a bit strong. Perfect for just relaxing and being at peace.

A trek back while having final snaps of the view before heading back to Allan’s.
