At 18,600 feet Ubinas is one big, black, jagged, gnarly looking volcano. It began erupting in 2006 and has been going off ever since at intervals of a week or two, emitting large clouds of ash that have buried the landscape over a vast area. Despite the recent U.N. evacuation of the region, several Indian families have returned to their farms directly beneath this smoldering volcano. The area is remote and requires 4WD access. Ubinas is unpredictable and at this stage climbing is forbidden.
