Hail The Most Beautiful Spot

After seeing the most raved about Angkor Wat in Cambodia, the glorious Grand Temple and Palaces in Thailand, the very sparkling Petronas Towers in Malaysia, and the brilliantly-designed Cu Chi Tunnel in Vietnam - my heart remains faithful to this one unique spot in the Philippines. The most stunning spot I've seen is still Mount Pinatubo.

Exerting a little energy is required before you can have a glimpse of the majestic site. Everyone who wishes to see this place needs to ride the bumpy 4x4 ride and trek for at least 20mins. Pain before pleasure, that adds to the beauty of this adventure.

Highlights of Mt.Pinatubo experience includes:

a bumpy and super fun 4x4 ride

a refreshing trek inside the rain forest

the first glimpse of the lake

Everyone will simply be in awe by the breath taking view of the lake. I can hear everyone (including myself) say "wow" repeatedly.

hail the most beautiful spot

not in another country, it's still in Pinas


What's the factor why Pinatubo is the best spot?
This volcano has once erupted and caused death to a lot of people. So it's just very hard to imagine that something this majestic can be destructive at the same time. That makes this spot very unique and remarkable. It's really something every Pinoy can be proud of.

wow, ang ganda talaga ng Pinas! ♥


this post is my contribution to the Pinoy Travel Bloggers' Blog Carnival with the theme Best Place You've Been To in the Philippines.

Ganda ng pinatubo. Never thought that the mountain that creates lahar possess a nice a majestic view.

Taal volcano mula sa malayo palang ang nakita ko. At mayon volcano sa malayuan nung bata pa ako. :( Sana magkaroon akong ng close encounter na mas malapit sa mga iyon. :D

Chyng tuloy na kami. Ang influential mo grabe lol. Two out of the 5 spots I have to see before I die, based on your recommendation.

Best spot for me so far is still Coron but based on stuff I read, pictures I've seen and stories of friends, Mt. Pinatubo is really much much more majestic. :)

Wala pa akong masasagot na best spot as hindi ako kasing adventurous and outgoing like you. The only getaway I had was in La Union w/ friends :(

BUT! I have to say this, idol na kita sa photography! Galing!

Ron | fliptravels.com said...

i remember seeing the turquoise spot from the aircraft, that lured me to travel to tarlac and see the crater. it's breathtaking and rowing a boat above an unknown depth it surreal!

kaya agree ako sayo!

Pinoy Boy Journals said...

i haven't done the Mt. Pinatubo trek yet, and with regards to your question, i have to sleep it over before i can decide. ang daming magandang lugar sa Pilipinas. Pero on top of my head, my first love which is Guimaras! Di ko makakalimutan yung trip ko dun ever.

Ian said...

I agree with your last statement... ang ganda talaga ng Pilipinas!

Rizalenio said...
