#1 of 170 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.

  • This was my second visit,the first visit there was a heavy mist,so you could not see anything,but the next day it was very clear. There are many many place where you can sit and have a meal or a drink...  more »
  • While the view of the crater is cool (I don’t think it’s truly worth the journey/cost...) the treatment, condition and clear abuse of the horses that are used and sold to you to trek up to the crater ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Can't believe my friends and I climbed the vol at noon sharp under the hot weather in Philippines.😅anyway it was worth it! I didn't need any help like horse riding, so proud. 😁🇵🇭
  • Great place, great view. Very nice people helping you with mountain horses. Talk to them and learn how they really live here.
