Is it safe to hike Mayon volcano?

Was wondering if its still possible to hike to the summit ever since the 2013 eruption. I had people saying that its safe while others saying that all climbing activities have stopped.

The permanent danger zone is still in place so it is not safe.

From the definition of the term Permanent Danger Zone, hiking the volcano is not safe for the years to come.

SUMMIT CLIMB IS PROHIBITED. But trekkers can opt to hike up to Camp 2 (1,800m) strictly accompanied by a license guide.

it safe to hike in Mayon Volcano because there are tour guides here that will guide you, and they have now the ATV rides that can use in hiking.

Is it still fine to go up?

How long does the trip take and can you do it without a guide?

The climb without a guide is of course possible but prohibited. Therefore it is very challenging and at your own risk.

Thus the view and lonelyness on top extremely rewarding :)

We did the climb 2 times in 3nights/4days using the 2 different gps routes you can find on maps.me application.

The danger zone is still in appliance as well as the level 1 vigilance by Phivolcs that we visited before going.

If you go out there, please don't underestimate the difficulty and plan wisely taking the weather into account (very slipery if wet)

Most important : have fun and be safe !

We will post a complete review as soon as we have time to write...

Cheers,

There have been eathquakes of up to level 7 further north centering around Batangas and being felt as far south as Daet ( about half way from Mt Mayon to Batangas.

I am no vulcanologist but as fault lines run down south in the region it is possible there may be a greater risk if these quakes do hit the Legaspi region which may affect the stability of the volcano.
