MT. PINATUBO: Once a Destruction, Now an Attraction

Mt. Pinatubo is an active stratovolcano in Cabusilan Mountain Range stretching along the provinces of Zambales, Tarlac and Pampanga. Its eruption in 1991 was the second largest in 20th century next to Novarupta, Alaska in 1912. The phenomenon was among the most destructive catastrophes experienced by Filipino people. Its eruption had been causing adverse impacts to locals, mostly Aetas, for a decade. Lahar flows and volcanic ashes damaged numerous infrastructure, changed river systems, destroyed vast farmlands and even unfertilized the soil.

It has wide pool for swimming. Enormous rocks and beauteous moss adorn the falls' surrounding. And the downslope trail to this wonderful water drop is never easy. I mean really difficult.
