Taal Volcano, Manila Reviews
This place was incredibly beautiful. The hike is not too bad if you decide to hike rather than take the horses. I was surprised to see steam billowing from certain parts of the trail; this thing is definitely still a volcano. Great views and photo ops, especially at sunset. The night lights of Tagaytay across the lake were also an unexpected and striking addition to the already stunning panoramic vista. I highly recommend.
So much fun to hike. Top tips: Payed under 2000 pesos for a private boat ride back and forth. Skipped the horses since i dont like how they are treated. Payed 50 dock fee and 100 peso environmental fee per person. Declined the tour guide. Bring lots of your own water or prepare to pay 50 pesos per bottle on the way up. Prepare to get dusty shoes. :) loved it.
Gotta hustle! The volcano was awesome and worth the 500 for a small donkey like horse, the guide and horse walker will cost you another 500, people will ask you to buy stuff for your guide and horse walker on the way up also. It's all worth it though as you get great views. My guide said a little bit about the volcano at the top and that was about it, mainly in a hurry to get us back down, ignore that business. The boat ride over is good too, you will be asked to pay for the tiny ramp to get off the boat too, which is totally not needed. be ready to give tips to almost everyone you meet. Was a great day
Beautiful scenery and well worth a visit. It is better to go early in the day because it can get very hot on the trail. It gets busy on weekends, so visit Monday to Friday to avoid crowds. The trail is fine to walk, but you may want to hire a horse if you have problems hiking moderately steep hills or if it is really hot. Bring your own water to stay hydrated as drinks are pricey at the stalls along the way.
Better to go early in the morning around 6am to avoid heat. If you have walking stick that woul help. Don't go during rainy days. Wear comfy shoes, bring water, camera, hat, mask and shawl to protect yourself from the sun.
