#1 of 171 in Nature in Luzon
Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Taal Volcano remains one of Philippines' smallest, yet most active volcanoes with 33 recorded eruptions so far. Formed by previous prehistoric eruptions caused by the meeting of two tectonic plates, the site represents an observatory for studying and predicting natural disasters. Inside the caldera, you can find a freshwater sulphuric lake surrounded by over 40 overlapping cones and craters. Explore the natural wonders and thermal areas that envelop the volcano, and don't forget your swimsuit if you wish to take a quick dip in the lake.

    Tagaytay went many times. Not especially impressed with views. It paid a 1,000 peso fruit stalls on the way back. Say take all goods sellers are not ready to change the loaded cars. Sharing with friends, was pleased.

    This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Just.. Amazing. Climb onto the peak of the volcano and take a look inside at the hot lake that it has become. Stunning.

    Bring your picnic lunch and head down with your tour guide to the bottom for a nice meal right by the water's edge, in perfect view of Taal Volcano. You can skip the boat ride to the volcano, but if you are visiting and may never come back why not. Other than a few wavy parts and splashes of waves, the person steering the boat gave us lots of plastic cover to keep us 'reasonably' dry. Enjoy!

    The best place to have family bonding. Hiking, horseback riding and picture taking are the best activities. The best time to hike is around 6am.

    Great place, great view. Very nice people helping you with mountain horses. Talk to them and learn how they really live here.
