My Mount Pinatubo Daytour Experience

Mount Pinatubo was once the most destructive volcano of the 20th century. It was the deadliest in recent years and very cataclysmic in terms of area of devastation. For many years the volcano remains unexplored and the only remnant is the barren landscape all the way to the Mount Pinatubo Crater Lake. It took more than a decade to explore the remaining of what is Mount Pinatubo today. The lahar deposit which was part of used to be tallest mountain in central Luzon was reduced to rubbles during its eruption.  The pyroclastic deposits still remains as of today and can be seen throughout Tarlac to Zambales.

Group Hugs Outdoors Invades Baler Aurora

I’ve been through a lot of places in the north. Never have I thought that I would be joining a group of outdoor enthusiast on their trip to Baler, Aurora. It was Parana Tours who lead our magnificent journey. It took us at least eight hours to reach our destination in which we need to navigate to the eastern most corridor of Luzon. The road is well developed but in some areas the road was pretty much rough! We passed by through roads while looking at the majestic Sierra Madre Mountain range. There are limited public transport providers from metro manila and only Genesis Transport has the route to Baler, Aurora. It wasn’t a good idea to commute since we will be occupying half of the bus’s maximum capacity. We availed the Parana Tours Baler Aurora Tour package so it will be easier for us to fix our itinerary. Of course Mr. Raymondson Parana is more than happy to accommodate us since he has already provided some recent trips for Group Hugs Outdoors. It was a recreational and educational trip for us heading to Baler. Aurora for me is some parts unknown to the map due to its remote location. […]
