Crater Lake, Mount Pinatubo ,Luzon, Philippines


Address -: Crater Lake, Mount Pinatubo – Luzon, Philippines

Lake Pinatubo is the summit crater lake of Mount Pinatubo formed after its climactic eruption on June 15, 1991. The lake is located near the boundaries of Pampanga, Tarlac and Zambales provinces in the Philippines and is the deepest lake in the country at 800 m (2,600 ft). It is about 90 km (56 mi) northwest of the capital city of Manila.

The lake is described as "a wide jewel of blue and green"  and is now a popular bush walking destination, mostly frequented by mountaineers and adventure-seekers. Until improvements were made, a trip to the summit involved either days of hiking or hours of 4-wheel vehicle travel followed by a 2-hour hard hike. Eventually, a trail called the Skywaywas made that allows 4 wheel drive vehicles a shorter route to a drop off point to trek to the crater.
