Lignon Hill

Posted by Malou at 5/05/2008 01:45:00 PM
Lignon Hill (pronounced as /li-NYON/) is one of the best places in Legazpi City if you want to have a very nice view of Mount Mayon and the city of Legazpi . A 143 meter high cinder-cone hill located 11 kilometer (6.8 miles) southeast of the volcano's summit is the highest location. Lignon Hill also towers the adjacent Legazpi Airport. As you climb up the hill turn onto the left and you will see the PHIVOLCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) they have a station there that regularly observe the activities of Mount Mayon and the surrounding areas. My parents home is situation at the very foot of Lignon Hill. Whenever i missed my family in the Philippines I just visited google earth because i can have a closer look of the places i wanted to see. My friends over here thought it is so cool when i told them about google earth. Check it out http://earth.google.com/.
