Please take note of the following before sending us your registration forms:
  • Mountaineering is a dangerous activity. We strongly discourage people who has certain illness that might be triggered by dust and exhaustion. This activity is only for people who are physically fit and with strong determination and patience
  • Conquering a mountain requires us to pass thru difficult terrain, rocky road, slippery rocks, crossing rivers & streams. You might be sprained or injured during the trek
  • You might get caught under heavy rainfall so you must be ready to be soaking wet otherwise, bring the necessary rain protection such as jacket and light raincoat to keep you warm even if you're caught in the midst of heavy rain
  • In case you're caught by a heavy rainfall along the area, you have to leave the place where there is a threat of landslide. Go to the open field far from the rivers. Stop trekking and seek refuge to the nearest Aeta Village. Your guides will seek help and rescue and you have to wait at the safest place. Never ride the 4x4 jeep as it will be impossible for them to cross the rivers because of the strong current.
  • Expect that your 4x4 jeeps might be trapped in the river beds or may have engine troubles and fixing and trouble shooting might take time and you must be prepared for these. For this reason, you need to have an extra trail water and food to avoid hunger in case you are delayed because of unexpected events.
  • Mount Pinatubo is not going to a park. You will have a difficult time so please don't expect the comforts that you find in the city. No electricity & cp signal at the crater. No restaurants and shower facilities aside from portable toilets. This is the reason why we provide tents for your belongings, for resting purpose and changing clothing as well so you won't have to fall in line at the public CR.
  • As a trip organizer, our job is just to arrange the transportation and necessary requirements to realize your mountaineering activity. In as much as we would like to give you the best service, there are situation which are out of our control such as the weather condition, engine troubles and accidents so as a mountaineer, you have to take all extra-precautionary measure during this activity.
  • We shall provide you with all the needed information, reminders and checklist that you will need in packing for you to be prepared in this activity. Please follow the rules in mountaineering, and never leave your group without the knowledge of your team leader & tour guides.
  • If you think you are prepared to face all the consequences of mountaineering, then send in your registration, otherwise, we discourage you to climb to avoid complaints and problems at the end of the day. Thank you very much.
