Transportation (Post#8) : Zambales – 4X4 Owner Type Jeep

Trekking Mount Pinatubo requires 4X4 to be able to reach the walking trail towards the mountain.

Beyond the mesh gate is a vast quarry of lahar. Upper Pampanga was one of the devastated areas when the Pinatubo erupted in 1991. The volcanic materials that were deposited are now a source of livelihood for the locals.
