The Philippine provinces of Zambales, Tarlac, and Pampanga all share a tripoint border with Mount Pinatubo, an active stratovolcano in the Zambales Mountains in Central Luzon on the northern island of Luzon. Prior to the early 1991 pre-eruption volcanic activity, most people were unaware of its eruptive history.

Mount Pico De Loro

On the Philippine island of Luzon, in the province of Cavite, is the dormant volcano known as Mount Pico de Loro or Mount Palay-Palay. The mountain is the highest peak in the Mounts Palay-Palay-Mataas-na-Gulod Protected Landscape, rising to a height of 688 meters above mean sea level.

Tarak Ridge

The name, which combines the words “tarik” (steep) and “tabak” (hunting knife), ought to have warned me of what to expect. At 1,130 meters above sea level, this summit in Mariveles, Bataan, offers breathtaking views of Bataan, Corregidor, and adjacent islands. On days with good visibility, Manila Bay can be seen all the way up to Cavite. However, you must first complete a fairly challenging climb through wide meadows and inclining roads that call for scrambling over roots and hanging to branches for support in order to fully appreciate the beautiful view.

Mount Apo

On the Philippine island of Mindanao is Mount Apo, a huge solfataric stratovolcano also known as Apo Sandawa. It is the highest mountain in the Philippine Archipelago and the 24th-highest summit of an island on Earth, rising 2,954 meters above sea level.

Mount Daguldol

Mount Daguldol is a 5.5-mile out-and-back trek that is regarded as strenuous and offers the possibility to witness wildlife. Most people use the trail for hiking, walking, and camping. If you’re looking for a steady, relatively easy hike with stunning scenery, this is one of the best hikes in the Philippines.

Also abundant in the area are native plants and animals, so keep an eye out for songbirds and colorful butterflies.

Taal Volcano

Taal Volcano is a large caldera filled by Taal Lake. The volcano, which is one of the most active ones in the country and is situated in the province of Batangas, has 35 historical eruptions that were all centered on Volcano Island, which is close to the center of Taal Lake.
