Province of Albay Travel Guide: 162 reviews and 589 photos

The 2,462-meter Mayon, about 340 kilometers southeast of Manila in Albay province, is famous among local and foreign tourists for its near-perfect conical shape despite dozens of eruptions in the past three centuries. The eruption of February 24, 2000 was Mayon's 47th since its first recorded upheaval in 1616. Mayon's last major eruption was in February 1993, when 70 people died and more than 50,000 people were evacuated. It's deadliest eruption was in February 1, 1814 when it buried the entire town of Cagsawa under ash and killed more than 1,300 people.
