Preparing for your Pinatubo trek

  • Check the weather Mount Pinatubo should only be hiked when the weather is good. In case of rain, the terrain made of lahar becomes unstable. Don't hesitate to postpone your trip in case of bad weather. Safety first!
  • Pack light. The regular Pinatubo trek will take around 2 hours going to the crater lake (using the old way trail) and another two hours trek going on the return. Do yourself a favor and keep your bag light. Your back will thank you for it.
  • Love your skin. The best time to go trekking Pinatubo is during the dry season (From end of October to May) which means there will be a lot of sun. So slather on that sunscreen and use a cap or hat.
  • Sole keepin'. Mount Pinatubo's terrain is rugged so protect your feet by wearing sturdy foot wear. You'll surely get wet as well so bring an extra pair.
  • Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. The trick on not getting a heat stroke is to drink BEFORE you even feel thirsty. You will be sweating a lot and hydrating is a sure way to battle fatigue. Bring at least 1.5 liter of water for the trek.
  • Fuel up. Making your own trail food is a fun and easy way to ensure that you have something to munch on while your hike the tricky terrain of Mt. Pinatubo. No need to go on a hunger strike there. Life is short. Eat.
  • Don't worry, be happy. Its not everyday that you get to commune with nature so don't rush - it's not a race. Appreciate the sight and sounds around you.
  • Leave no trace while trekking. You probably have heard of this one before but we'll say it again anyway. Take nothing but pictures; Leave nothing but footprints; Kill nothing but time.

There are two ways to reach the crater lake. The first one, "the old way" takes 1 hour 4x4 ride (orange trail on the map) and will follow the O'donnell river bed + 2 hours trekking (yellow trail on the map) in the breathtaking Crow valley Canyon. The second one, "the new way" takes 1.5 hour 4x4 ride (blue trail on the map) + 30 minutes trekking (green trail on the map) but it is currently closed.
