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?

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

I was In Filippine in 1997 1998 for a period of 4 month.
One English friend say we rent a cross bike and we visit pinatubo?
Ok and so we go starting from angeles city.
No entry fee at that time.
Try to go on top of vulcano but was impossible.
At the way of the return closed to the river like the first picture you show flat area my front weel go inside the quicksand,we both follow down fortunately without enjuried.
The motorbike strart to go more down and down slowly.
The England man not soo young cannot help me but I no want loose the money of the motorbike we rent money at that time was not too much.
I get motorbike off the quicksand
Cannot strart we bring to the first shop for fix and after 2 days we go back for take it.
When we say with the man where we rent motorbike say what I do was very dangerous if him know we went there will not allow us to go
And the quick sand also if appear strong around can fall down and can loose life.
I was lucky don t happen.
They no charge us for the stop of motorbike the 2 days.
English friend say
All is well what finish well
