    Hi Helbob,

    I am visiting Philippines soon and would like to add Pinatubo to my itinerary.

    From your post, it seems that you managed to ride the bike up the trail instead of taking their 4WD? How did you manage to convince them?

    May I know what you mean by "The owner of nice bike told us that sometimes bikes modified from the 4x4 drivers and then the 4x4 driver want 10.000 peso rescue." Is nice-bike trying to say they might sabotage your bike?

    Yes, this means it

    I been there 2 times. One time with tour (minibus and 4 WD) and one time everything with the motorbike

    I'm just back from Philippines. From what I heard, they no longer allow tourists to ride up Mt Pinatubo because of an accident 1-2 years back. Anyway, looking at the terrain during my visit on 4WD, it would be no easy feat. Kudos to you for riding all the way up.

    on one day they say no, then they say only with guide, and when i come there on a sunday i not need a guide and it was very easy. Only the soldier ask "do you know the way?".
    Many things in phils change every, the price too :D
