This place is seriously amazing. The perfect aquamarine lake that formed in the volcano crater is breathtaking. They used to let you swim in the crater but I heard it's no longer allowed. They also used to take you across the lake in a row boat where you can see some geothermal activity, but I'm not sure if that's still ongoing.

Off the beaten path, this trek is growing increasingly popular among hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. In 1991, the eruption of Pinatubo impacted millions of people and disrupted the local economy for years. Today, however, the lahar (volcanic ash) that was once so devastating is now benefiting the same areas it affected. The same lahar constitutes a significant portion of the adventure trail up to Crater Lake. I definitely recommend this hike if you're willing to do the drive, the off-road adventure, and a day spent on your feet. Just start early to avoid the heat, and bring lots of water (and maybe a pair of slippers for water crossings). To prep for the trip or just get a better idea before deciding on going, you can read more (and see more photos) here: https://ramblingsuitcase.wordpress.com/2015/01/10/volcano-venture-mount-pinatubo/

Take a 4x4 going to the foot of the mountain , From there the trekking begins going up the crater. It will take you approximately 20 mins. to get to your destination. This picture was taken at the mouth of the crater and they've built a stairs going down to the lake. Yes, you can take a dip, but be cautious because some parts of the lake is too hot to bear, you can even see it boiling. The tour guide will inform you which parts are not advisable for swimming.

An ideal destination for adventure trekkers. Great deal for groups as you need a 4 x 4 to get there. A long but worth it hike to the crater. Swim in the refreshing sulphur lake (good for the skin).
