PHILIPPINES - Climbing Mount Pinatubo & Meeting the AETA Tribe
Today is a very special vlog, today we climbed the amazing mount pinatubo and finally met the aeta tribe of Filipino.We started the day buy driving in the 4x4 from our accommodation (alvin & angies guest house) to mount pinatubo jump off point the drive was amazing! its very bumpy but you drive through rivers and up sand banks, its a real off road experience.We then stopped at a location for pictures and a quick 5 minute stop, there is are a few cliffs here that make for a good photo opportunity.We then continued our drive to the jump off point of the trek, you have 2 options for either walking 3km or 7km. We opted for the 7km walk to get extra time to take photos and video ect. The walk is pretty easy and accessible for everybody.As you see from the drone mount pintatubo is a very special place and insanely stunning with huge cliffs of sharp rocks with strong colors. Flying the drone over mount pinatubo really did give us the wow factor and appreciation for the mountain when we watched it back.After making our way back down the mountain we asked if we could visit the aeta tribes village. Aeta people are the original Filipinos from hundreds or thousands of years ago who keep themselves away from the rest of the Philippines and stay in the mountains usually. I was most likely the first black westerner that most of them have ever seen so it was a really crazy experience and one that we will remember for ever. We played with the aeta kids and caught some really funny moments.By the end of the day we was so tired but loved the day and how it unfolded and really pleased we could share it with you.mt pinatubo is a fairly easy walk and pretty flat considering, on your mt pinatubo tour make sure you visit the aeta village it happend to be the highlight of the day and we really did not expect it at all.
