About Mount Mayon

The Mount Mayon is a sacred and symmetrical conical-shaped active stratovolcano. It is located on the large and beautiful island of Luzon in the Philippines. Its uniqueness and luscious greenery attract millions of tourists every year. Interestingly, the surrounding of this volcanic mountain has been declared as a national park and added to the list of UNESCO in 2016.

This is believed to be the secret paradise for those who are fond of travelling and would like to explore the hidden gems around the world. It boasts of green meadows and a magical vibe that will take you away from the crowded noise of the city. 

You can have the best experience of riding an All-terrain vehicle(ATV). An adventurous expedition and plenty to explore for climbers and campers. Trees are mostly aligned and boast almost similar features and shapes, which you would love watching for hours. Vibrant ‘Abaca’ plantations on its slopes are really magical. Though the disastrous volcanic eruption caused the death of many locals yet no one can ignore the miraculous beauty of it.

An extraordinarily amazing volcanic mount, it is considered one of Earth's most active volcanoes lately. Interestingly, locals call it a secret paradise. You can also observe the small volcanic eruption if you are lucky enough. You can also capture an ample number of instagrammable photos and impress your friends and family. Witnessing the most dangerous and active volcanic giant that took millions of years to establish, would be a lifetime experience for you.
