Mayon Volcano, Luzon

On the island of Luzon is an active volcano called Mayon Volcano which is also known as Mount Mayon. The volcano has picked up the nickname “Perfect Cone” due to its symmetrical cone shape. There are frequent eruptions at the volcano which lead to large evacuations of the neighboring towns as the ash and mud rains down on the people below. The most serious eruption recorded was in 1814, this led to over 1200 people losing their lives. The volcano and surrounding areas are part of a national park that is certainly worth visiting whilst you are in the Philippines.
