Puning Hot Spring Highlights

If you think that this is just a regular ride, then you’ve got it all wrong. Since the area of the Puning Hot Spring is located right at the bottom of a part of the infamous Mount Pinatubo, expect that the 4×4 ride will be bumpy and exciting! Fee the surge of wind as you possibly go through some muddy areas. This is going to be the perfect hell of a kind ride.
