Mayon Volcano, Legazpi

4.6
Take remarkable photographs of Mayon Volcano and experience the raw scenic beauty that surrounds it. Known for its perfectly symmetrical cone shape, the closely monitored active stratovolcano rises 2,463 m (8,081 ft) with hardened layers of pyroclastic and lava flows from past eruptions. A total of 49 eruptions have been documented since the first blast in 1616, so practice caution during your visit and follow instructions carefully. Besides observing the fearsome volcano, adventure-seekers can also head to the surrounding natural park to observe animal and plant life, or the skyline park to enjoy a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean at 820 m (27,00 ft). Bring plenty of drinking water, good shoes, and a camera. Put Mayon Volcano on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Legazpi tour itinerary maker website .

  • The experience of seeing the volcano erupting at night is priceless! Bring your best binoculars or telescopic cameras to see if better.
  • I agree with many sites. Mayon Volcano is an example of a perfect volcano and a climber's dream. The thing that really attracts people to this volcano is the prefect cone shape of the volcano. And the small opening at the top. Although it is active all the time and erupt very often. It Is worth it to risk your life to go to the top of the volcano. Although people died by an eruption when they were climbing the mountain. I would have climbed the mountain anyway. Mayon volcano is the most beautiful volcano I've seen.
  • I've always thought of climbing there. Hope I can visit my hometown again. Brings back many good memories
  • Amazing and beautiful creating nature's and then you will understand everything better.
  • Mayon Volcano was the best part of all my travels with it's scenic views and the friendliest, most welcoming, sincerest people you will meet. Looking at the mountain ( when it is calm) you will feel like singing and really giving PRAISE TO THE LORD.
