Going on a trip in one of the most thrilling place on Earth sure is a fun way to express your adventurous side. While it is important to release stress during your adventure, it is also important to make things memorable and that’s why you must choose the perfect destination for your trip. Others would rather pick the extreme, going as far as reaching the cliff of a mountain that is hundreds of miles tall. There are also those who would like to be in a known active volcano for his or her adventure. However, what will you do if the extreme adventure that you dream of has gone over the top, when the volcanic island that you went to suddenly acted up?
When A Seemingly Quiet And Mesmerizing Volcano Island Erupted
Earlier this week, the Philippines was surprised by the sudden ash explosion in Taal Volcano in the province of Batangas. While Taal is the second most active volcano in the Southeast Asian country, people are used to see the volcanic island as beautiful and serene. In fact, many tourists flock over the place to see its picturesque view as it remains quiet and calm. Unfortunately, after many years of quiet, Taal turned into a monster that sent hazardous volcanic materials hundreds of miles up in the atmosphere. The ashfall caused by the volcano even reached places as far north as Manila and Northern Luzon.
The thing here is that many tourists, particularly hikers or trekkers (whatever you want to call them), were actually in the volcano island just a few minutes before Taal went on to its explosive phase. These tourists noted of some weak steam coming from one spot of the island, but they had no idea that this small steaming activity in the mouth of the volcano was actually the beginning of a more violent sequence later on. Luckily, the hikers were able to go out of the island before the gigantic ash column was created at the crater of Taal. Just imagine the horror if the hikers were a little too late in getting on the boat to escape the island.
For these adventurers, going out of their trip on the volcano unscathed is a very memorable achievement. They were able to feel that adrenaline rush while trying to outrun the volcanic activity in Taal, and their adventure was even documented on camera. The video can be enjoyed by people on the Internet, and perhaps after watching it, they can try downloading this fun phone prank call app which is perfect for people looking for some laughs.
