the taal volcano itself

Taal Volcano, in the Philippines, was originally a huge volcano, that towered 18,000 feet up into the sky. It has been called the smallest active volcano, because it seems small now, but many people don't realize that it is one of the largest volcanoes in the world. It is located about 70-km south of Manila on "volcano island" inside a lake called Taal Lake, or Lake Taal.


That's the taal volcano in the background.

Horse back riding near one of Taal's resort.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:You'll get to see the smallest active volcano in the world
  • Cons:Swimming near the Taal volcano isn't such a nice idea.
  • In a nutshell:Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Taal volcano from afar! Or if you love trekking then get your hiking boots and go down til you reach the Taal Volcano.
