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.

  • This is a once in a lifetime destination, one to cross off our "bucket-list" of locations to go to in the world. How often can you say you've been somewhere where there is an: Island in a lake in a vo...  more »
  • The volcano. Near Manila is already a nice view, but the arrival even at 60 km distance takes about two hours. We had booked a tour of ur was the prospect of doing it was a little disappointing. You should take then maybe more time and time with a boat trip and a trip closer to the volcano.

  • By Talisay by boat to the foot of the mountain, and then by horse to the top of our line six people first about the boatman, directly by boat to the mountain foot entrance boat speed Aleppo fast, but Taal Lake there are also many waves. It's basically wet. Advise the instrument of rain 褸 or waterproof, and carefully protect the heavy items. No one in the same company went for the second time, saying that there was no moisture at all last time. May be the weather problem) immediately after the ship someone came to the shadow phase, do not want to be trouble to call also don't shoot, but to call a few times before the hand. And then pay for it. You can choose to ride a horse or not. Do not ride the horse to hike up the mountain. He'll ask you to buy a mask. Advice is not to be bought because it is totally useless. (But I bought ...) So we chose to ride up the mountain and 伕 to chat with you. Listen to them, they're carrying horses that they've trained. The wind is beautiful along the way. It's not fast, you can take pictures. Up to the top of the mountain you can have a 伕 drink. The mountain has a pay watch, they will ask you to pay for it, you can ignore it. You can take a look around the four, but all Aleppo the wind. The view of the volcano Lake is not a magnificent one, but under the sun, the scenery is pleasant and it is worth taking a trip. Advice is to be developed early, because there is no shade along the way, it will be very hot. We lived near Talisay, and had been to the foot of the mountain for nine hours. The whole uphill and downhill trip plus about two hours. We've left before noon, and it doesn't feel too hot! The biggest problem with this view is that the Talisay is less accessible or worth staying. It takes a whole day to pull out of the horse. We also go because we live near.

  • This review depends on your skill level as a hiker. If you are a beginner and starting off your first hikes, this is a great place to start. If you are a seasoned hiker, this might bore you.
  • Trike, boat and hike to get there but worth it. Guide was great: how hard can the hike be when they do it in flip-flops! At a good place you can finish the ascent in about 30 mins.
  • Take the horse ride up 1000 Peso return. Nice view at the top. Very unique place and pay extra 25 Peso pp to walk to the red rock
  • Medium hike, all up hill is the issue. The guides are nice and will answer any questions. They'll also take pics for you.
  • Nice hike up the hill make sure you have something to drink with you .
