Mount Pinatubo Climbing Notes

Akyat Pa from PHILIPPINES writes:

8 of us, ages 16-74, did the 14K round trip walk up Pinatubo on 31/12/16, cloudy weather saved us from the usual heat. Beautiful.

Bring minimum 2 liters of water, hat, bandana, sun block, sturdy water hikers. This is a river walk, after the 4X4 that drives you much of the way. If over 40--they insist on taking your blood pressure before letting you go; if 60+, you need a medical certificate stating you are fit to go.

Currently not allowed to swim in the crater because someone drowned a few years back. This is sayang and silly.
Several tour companies offer packages from Manila, and there are lodges in Sta. Ana: the starting point; about 24K from the crater.
