Here's a roadmap to Mt. Pinatubo Registration Station:
HOW TO JOIN A TRIP TO MT. PINATUBO:
Simply register at Capas Tarlac town center. We registered at the Pinatubo Spa Town. You may book in advance through the president of the 4x4 Association, Wendell Mercado at http://pinatubowendell.blogspot.com/ or +639196084313.
Pay the applicable fees before the start of the tour:
- P3750 for 4-wheel drive with capacity of 4 to 5
- P500 tourist guide fee per vehicle
- P50/head conservation fee
- P500 skyway toll fee per vehicle
- = roughly P1000/head for group of 5
It's an hour rough ride on the 4x4 through lahar stricken town.
Picture stop half-way.
If you are up to the challenge, you may opt for a longer path: a choice of an hour, two or three hour trek.
or opt for the shortest route like I did.
Picturesque view of the crater.
P350 per head optional rowing.
Make sure you pay at the registration station before the start of the trek, they don't accept payment up here.
Be back in town before sundown, after the bumpy ride and long walk, experience the Vulcanic Ash Spa, Mud Pool and a massage at Pinatubo Spa Town for P500 for each service.
