The jump off point going to Mt. Pinatubo is in Capas, Tarlac which is 28 kilometers away from the crater. You will be riding in 4x4 vehicles for about an hour and the hike is about 7 kilometers. There is another route to shorten the trek which they called Skyway. It will only take you less than an hour to the crater, but it has been damaged due to rain. Our driver of 4x4 vehicle told us he heard rumors that the government is planning to rebuild the Skyway. I hope what he said was true. Will definitely come back to this place if ever that will happened.
