Travel snapshots: Volcanoes
The Perfect Cone: Mayon Volcano
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Located in the province of Albay on the island of Luzon, Mayon volcano is renowned as the perfect cone. According to the record, Mayon volcano is the most active volcano in the Philippines. It had erupted 48 times in the past 400 years. The last time it had erupted was on May 7, 2013 that unfortunately killed 5 climbers.
Manila iReporters - Sherbien, Vince, Rafy, Veron, Andrew and I hiked Mayon volcano in December 2011. Our goal was to reach Camp One which is 2,500 above sea level. It took us more than 3 hours to climb and more than 2 hours to come back.
The experience of hiking Mayon volcano was awesome, and indeed a memorable trip - these images are the memories.
Please check out for more photos on the report posted in December 2011.
