Tour in Lahar Devastated Areas (Pampanga)

June 5, 2005

I can't hardly remember every specific detail about this trip since it was two years ago, but I am trying to recall it was 6 hours tour for that day, (including traffic) which made us being stuck to the road from time to time.

We also had a quick tour to Clark, but everything was closed including the museum since it was Saturday. We just proceeded to the church which is the San Fernando Cathedral.

Not much to share except some photos within the lahar devastated place.

The background is a huge area covered by mudflows and lahar when Mt. Pinatubo erupted. The area used to be a densely populated community, but now became a barren land. Many still believes, many lives were lost and buried on this area.

San Fernando Cathedral is one of the oldest churches in Pampanga that was half covered by lahar.
