What a beautiful turquois blue caldera on the top! Foot hiking after the jeep approach was about 3 hours one way to the top of this picturesque volcano. The hidden entrance is found by a local guide and an extensive Jeep ride across salt flats and thru small rivers to the jump off point. Then did a quick climb up a wooden ladder system, trekked thru hot stream run-offs, gravel beds, layers of recent volcanic ash, and then up through a lush green jungle to take a refreshing swim at the top. A+ climb in the Phillipines!
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
