It’s easy to spot a volcano or two in a particular landscape in the Philippines. But seeing five in one spot? That may seem a lot but, yes, there’s a particular place in Bicol, specifically along a highway in Ocampo, Camarines Sur, when four volcanoes at the left and one at the right (when going to San Jose Partido), just line up and amaze you! That is, if you know that these are volcanoes!
A few kilometers from the town of Ocampo, enroute to San Jose Partido, one can see at the left the following: Mt. Malinao, Mt. Mayon with its graceful cone, Mt. Masaraga with its peak barely peeking above and then there’s Mt. Asog (also known as Mt. Iriga). All these four volcanoes just line up above the horizon and best viewed at a rice field along the way.
Then turn to your right and you see Mt. Isarog, the closest one at this particular part of the highway. Five Volcanoes in one spot! It’s this golden line between Isarog and the four volcanoes where you can see all.
Now, if only, the other two volcanoes found in Bicol are much closer: Mt. Labo in Camarines Norte and Mt. Bulusan in Sorsogan.
