Volcán Mayon

Mayon Volcano (Albay, Luzon) – located 9 hours southeast of Manila (via car) this is an active volcano within a natural park in Albay (Luzon Island). Adventurous eco-tourists interested in seeing an active volcano will note that this volcano spewed lava as recently as September 2014 (causing nearby locals who lived within 6 km of the crater to flee). This volcano’s most violent eruption killed over 1,200 people and wiped out several small towns in 1814.
