Mayon Volcano, Legazpi

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 .
