Taal Volcano, Tagaytay Reviews
The most accessible volcano from Manila. Takes around 1.5 hours by car and 45 by boat to access the stunning views of this crater lake. One can either ride a horse or hike going up the crater. Either way is fine. The horse ride is more convenient but the hike allows one to see the majestic scenery from the other side of the volcano. A must visit!
A Tourist from Vietnam: Sleeping volcano with some parts still having smoke... To go there, you have to rent a boat, after spending about 20', it will take you to lower part of Taal Volcano mountain. One more time, you have to take out your wallet and pay for renting a horse which can take you to summit of mountain where having Taal Lake. (Of course, you can walk yourself up to summit). Standing of the edge of lake, you can see volcano smoke fly out from rock formations. It is so fantastic because Vietnam does not have any volcano :)
Is it free to visit most of the attractions and the volcano?? Is the water clean can we take bath and have fun, relax at that place?? Is there anything else other then the volcano?? What is the best time to go there??
A lake in a volcano, on a lake, on an island, in the sea. Wrap your head around that. Gets fierce warm at the top so keep that in mind. Best to go in the early morning before it gets too warm. Drink lots of water going here. Met an American fella at the top by the name of Adrian. Funny how you remember these things. Grand view certainly. Was able to see clear across the bay all the way out to napayung island. Took a pony to the top and found that a wee bit hairy (in more ways than one) but got there and back safely to tell the tale. And I didn't fall over either despite my MS. My horses name was Waldo. Can't remember the name of any of the guides but I'll have to remember to post that horse an apple at some stage to thank him for hauling my fat arse all the way to the summit. A wee bit pricey but the memory pays for itself
The volcano is unique in that its on an island in a lake, and has another lake within its vast crater. The views from the ridge on the access highway to the volcano are legendary.
