The black lava ATV trail was the best! It's an adventure that should not be missed when visiting the area. Whether you find yourself at the base of Mayon or at the Helipad, the experience of witnessing the majestic Mount Mayon is truly awe-inspiring. The black lava trail, in particular, is highly recommended for those who prefer a less strenuous hike, although it does involve a climb to reach the helipad area.
If you want to see the best view of Mt. Mayon, it's advisable to embark on the adventure early in the morning. Our schedule was 6am and we were lucky enough to see the volcano up to its crater. We had a scheduled start time of 6 am and were fortunate enough to witness the volcano in all its glory, right up to its crater.
Our van driver also mentioned that the company your brother who offers this ATV service is one of the pioneer companies who ever offered it and has exclusive access to the base of Mount Mayon. Based on our personal experience, booking through Klook made the process seamless and their service was very good. When one of our ATVs encountered an issue midway through the journey, they promptly provided a replacement. Moreover, our guide went above and beyond, capturing amazing videos and pictures of our adventure.
It's worth noting that it took us at least 3 hours to complete this adventure . Before we embarked on our journey we were provided an orientation, some safety gear and an opportunity to test drive the ATV's, this is to check who know how to maneuver better. Please be aware that those with better driving skills usually go last, as they are better equipped to navigate any obstacles that may arise. So, be prepared, buckle up, and ready your hands and arms for an exhilarating ride that promises both thrills and breathtaking vistas.
