  Crater Lake of Mt. Pinatubo
by Peter_VIE

On 15th June 1991 it came to an enormous eruption of Mt. Pinatubo. The clouds of steam and detritus was shot up to 40 km into the straosphere. The result of this catastrophe: 900 fatalities, 40.000 destroyed houses and 250.000 homeless people.
Guided one-day crater tours start from Angeles by Jeep. From the end of the road it takes about 2 1/2 hours by feet to the crater. Very impressive the grey mass of coagulated material and ash which can reach heights of up to 100m.
