In the past 400 years, Mount Mayon has erupted for 49 times. As a result, it is dubbed as the most active volcano in the Philippines.

Even though it earned such reputation, it is one of the most magnificent volcanoes in the world. With its almost symmetrically conical shape, Mount Mayon is known for its “perfect cone.”

Location: Albay, Philippines
Type: Stratovolcano (tall, conical volcano)

For decades, Mayon Volcano has not been used by serious climbers. For that reason, the mountain is filled with forest trees, varied vegetation and has been a home to different unique species.

... Soon I will be able to witness such captivating scenery.
