So the first tip to travellers to the top of the volcano - don't take the pony. The climb is pretty easy; it can turn a bit muddy if it rains, but one has the lake to wash up in. Yes, it can get warm...More

A place for nature lovers. I suggest that you go there hiking from the bottom. It will take around 3 hours to reach the top.

Taal Volcano is a geological wonder being that it is a volcano within a lake within a volcano and it is the smallest active volcano in the world. I cannot express how incredible this experience was. It really was a once in a lifetime opportunity....More

There are two entry points into the volcano rim but only one that will take you down to the internal lake which also features the steam exhausts that can cook an egg. We opted for the hike to the lake and so it was a...More

We came as a family of four. To come here you've got to find a resort along Talisay, Batangas that offers boat for rental to cross Taal lake. I found one which costs 2,500 pesos and 500 pesos for the tour guide. You can ask...More

Climbing a volcano is no petty adventure. One reaches the Taal by boat. Then you hike the steep mountain on the rundown and dusty ash trail (1h30) or hire a guide and a horse to get you to the top. It's hot and hard work....More
