Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Masterpiece

My grandmother used to tell us stories when we were small. One of them is about Mt Hibok-hibok and that this volcano has caused plenty of damage when it erupted in 1951. Some of her friends and relatives died during earthquake and avalanche of volcanic lava and stones. Some have survived but they got burns on face, shoulders or hands. It also destroyed hundreds of homes due to intense ash rains. I even saw one of my grandmother’s friends who has scars from the said eruption.

This is located in Mambajao, Camgiuin Philippinesd and to this date, some parts affected by this volcanic explosion are used as tourist spots in the province.

Mt Hibok-hibok is still active and permanently monitored by volcanologists.

It is a beautiful sight in the province but I call this mountain as nature’s …deadly masterpiece1

  1. Hello! It’s good that youve been to Camiguin. Very nice place. Maybe you’ll love the Enchanted River too, near our place, that’s in Hinatuan, surigao del sur, Philippines. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog! Never been in HInatuan but it’s been a dream to visit one day. I stayed in Tandag for 3 years but never been in that part of Surigao del Sur. But yes, Enchanted River and Britania are definitely on the top list! Thanks for following and for the comment! All the best!
