  • To the South from Manila 10 km, a mysterious Crater Lake. Views from the pass of corners and climbs the TAGAYTAY Hill Starbucks. Many bike, ideal for drive and touring. This area is also luxury resort in the summer.

  • This is a huge lake, blue waters surrounded by green hills. The lake is so huge, it takes exact 25 mins to cross it by speed boat.  more »

  • It was a scary boat ride going to the volcano due to strong wind but we reached safely. The horses that are for rent look frail, not a difficult hike. My 7 yr old nephew reached the crater with no sweat 😝 the view is breath taking! Amazing nature!
  • Beautiful fresh Water lake. It's famous lake product is Tilapia fish. So tasty and there isn't any hints of soil taste that even people who doesn't like fish couldn't resist it after the first taste.
  • Nice place for small group hiking. Beautiful view of surrounding areas.
  • Beautiful lake, nice views to relax and enjoy a coffee at any of the Cafés at the edge of it. However, little bit boring...if you don't have much time, don't go there.
  • Task Lake is one of the top tourist spots in the country , the cool wind and exceptional beauty of the surrounding will get one closer to nature :-)
