Beautiful Disaster 2018
Have you ever wonder how a big disaster of the 1990’s leave such a trace of beauty up until today? Who would even expect? Well yea.
It is incredibly amazing how those lahar, that covered the whole Zambales, Tarlac, Pampanga and all the places around, can be this view-tiful.
Those mountain-like formations behind us are actually lahar that over the years has slid down especially on rainy seasons. The local there called ‘aetas’ are seen around the place. I wonder how they got back up from such a disaster but I can tell by now that this place has become a tourist spot and aetas make a living out of it. On our way to the crater, you will see some selling water, or other goods just in case you didn’t go there well prepared. Expect that their goods will ofcourse be double the price or even more than that compared when you buy from the city.
There are allot of 4×4 rides that you can actually book to make the long walk cut short to just 15 mins to see the crater.
It took us 1.5 hours to two hours enjoying the scenic view in this 4×4. It was fun enjoying the bumpy road and the thrill it gives is amazing, up until now I feel like shouting for joy and I can freshly remember the happiness it gave me.
But happiness just started at that ride, but as we move along, it goes along. The the happiness it gives you becomes priceless as you see those aetas kids appreciating small gifts you give to them.
Happiness are doubled when shared. I have been a witness and the smile that drew on their faces are just beyond beautiful. It gives me the urge to Go further to reach out. The experience was just great. And I feel the greatest maybe because I waited for too long to make this plan happen.
