The place itself and its atmosphere are unique, and the landscapes unforgettable. The views of the lake, the boats and the volcano will make you enjoy a lot wheter you are a landscape lover or a photographer.

Please don’t take a horse up to the volcano, they are clearly maltreated and not fit to be trekking up the trails (the poor things are underfed, overworked, injured, clearly ill/sick and unhappy). It’s an easy hike- enjoy the exercise!

The lake can be placid and rough so one should always have a life jacket handy. You need to cross the lake inorder to reach the Taal 🌋. Best to do this in the morning.

You can charter a local to take you where you want to go, although it can be a little expensive. In The Philippines anything is possible, people are super hrlpful and friendly.

thank you, RanRanC! I went to Tagaytay but ended up just looking at it from afar. Renting the boat alone is just too pricey. But even then, the view from up here is just amazing!
