Mt Pinatubo, Philippines

During my last trip to Philippines, my girlfriend and i did a trek up to Mt Pinatubo.
  The volcano is located 87 km (55 miles) northwest of Manila, 14 km (9 miles) west of the former Clark Air Base, and 37 km (23 mi) north of the former U.S. Naval Base Subic Bay
Clark Air Base's residential areas and petroleum storage facilities were in much closer proximity to the volcano than the airfield complex and neighboring Angeles City.
  The easiest way to get there is with a planned tour, which you can book from any of the travel agents around Angeles City.

The first part of the trip involved a 1hr 4wd trip in the jeeps pictured below.

Once the jeeps went as far as they could we had to hike.

Then finally we made it to Mt Pinatobu.
