See the so-called Beautiful Disaster as popularized by a local Filipino film on a guided hiking trip from Manila to Mount Pinatubo. Experience the area’s natural scenery and wildlife on a 4x4 ride and 14-km trek. Admire the Pinatubo Crater and visit an Aeta tribe village. Located in the north of Metro Manila, the active volcano of Mt. Pinatubo is famous for two reasons: its hypnotizing beauty and its disastrous eruption in 1991 that was felt worldwide as the mudflow wiped out the locals’ livelihood. Start your thrilling 14-km trail with a scenic 4x4 ride to the hike’s starting point. Be prepared to cross tiny rivers under the warmth of the sun on a challenging but beautiful trek to the mountain.

This is the perfect opportunity to immerse in their culture and way of life.
