This is what my hometown is proud of - the Mayon Volcano. Its the world’s most perfect cone and is considered by many people to be more beautiful than Mt. Fuji in Japan (I don't know if I gave justice to it). Her name was derived from the Bikol word “Magayon,” which literally means beautiful. Standing at 2,462 metres, Mayon is classified by volcanologists as a stratovolcano (composite volcano). Its symmetric cone was formed through alternate pyroclastic and lava flows. Mayon is the most active volcano in the country, having erupted around 50 times for the past 400 years. The last erupion was in 2004. This photo was shot at around 6:30 am on top of Lingnon hill in Daraga Town (15 minutes by walking from my home).

the best thing to do is to observe where it gets lava inorder for us to take some necessary precautions to make us alert to all earthquake accidents in luzon province or in any part of the country located in asia where most filipinos live and thank god he always love to love all of us for such knowledge power for our own protection in our daily life each godly people are entitled in such protection. thanks be to our one and only god and let all praises and glory be brought back to him all the time . in christ the saviour s name i pray and thank him all the time now and forever amen.
