There are 2 camps when travelling up to the summit of Mount Mayon. Camp 1 is around 2 hours away and lies at the foot of the slope of the mountain. Camp 2 is situated beside a dry waterfall bed or popularly known
as the “gulley” or “water source”, climbers reach this camp site after a four to five hour long trek and climb from the base camp. Camp 2 also offers spectacular view of the city of Legazpi and the ocean.
From Camp 2, there would be a 5 to 7 hours hard trek to reach the crater of Mount Mayon. Trekkers would be passing straight up the gulley towards the summit. This part of the leg is definitely not for the weak as this is best recommended for intermediate or advanced climbers. Upon reaching the summit, you will be rewarded with an unbelievable view of the Legazpi City and the islands beside it.
