If you’re always in the mood for an unforgettable experience, the Philippines won’t leave you disappointed. It offers all sorts of fun activities to people who like to live on the edge, including visits to its breathtaking volcanoes—starting with these three.

Taal Volcano

Many of the Philippines’ most popular volcanoes are lining the edge of Luzon Island, and that also happens to be the case with Taal. Despite the fact it’s still active, this volcano is a huge hit with tourists because it’s easily reachable from Manila and it’s home to one of the most beautiful crater lakes you’ll ever see.

Mayon Volcano

Mayon is another breathtaking volcano on the island of Luzon that you shouldn’t miss for the world while in the Philippines. It’s a dream come true for photographers thanks to its nearly perfect cone and it’s a part of a protected area together with its nearby surrounding.

Mount Pinatubo

It’s only been two decades since Pinatubo’s most notorious eruption, but that’s not stopping tourists from flocking to this volcano. It’s extremely popular with hikers thanks to its good network of hiking trails that lead to the charming Lake Pinatubo that was formed after a 1991 eruption.
