Mayon Volcano, Bicol

The Perfect Cone
Currently ranking at No. 9

If the earth was ice cream, this still active volcano would be the ideal reverse cone, with height of 2,462 meters (8,077 feet).

Why it deserves your vote: Mayon, famous for its perfect cone shape, was formed through alternate pyroclastic and lava flows during explosions. It is the most active volcano in the country, having erupted over 47 times in the past 400 years. It is part of what is called the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Things to do: Bicol is a foodtripper's haven. But aside from its spicy and creamy dishes, you can go wakeboarding in the Camsur Watersports Complex in Naga, or swim with the whale sharks in Donsol, Sorsogon.

How to get there: Once you arrive in Legazpi, Mayon looms in the horizon. But the best views are from LiƱon Hill located behind the Albay Park and Wildlife.

I still remember when the time when we're my family traveling to Bicol, that even you are in very far place it is easy to recognize that volcano because of his perfect shape. So the next time we go back in Bicol I will push my self to closely see that volcano and how truly touch the beauty of nature.

So Vote it now! New 7 Wonders of the World.

hi fellas. I'm actually into shoes and I had been searching for the sake of that particular model. The prices seeking the velcros are all over 220 bucks on every site. But completely I bring about this area selling them someone is concerned half price. I absolutely like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely order those. what is your opinion?
