The path up to the Taal Volcano crater rim on an island of the Taal Lake starts at the village on the shore where you alight from the banca (traditional boats). It will first pass through the village which will give you a good glimpse of life of the locals. After this, it will go up a gentle sloped path which is eroded on the sides. There is still some shade here because of the surrounding trees. After this section, the trees will get less as you climb up slowly along a gentle slope where you reach a section with very good views of the Taal Lake and Tagaytay ridge. From here onwards, there is little shade and will be difficult especially on a hot day. You will go up the hill on open land, and the final part of the climb is relatively steeper where you finally reach the crater rim where there are many shelters awaiting you with cold drinks! Of course, the magnificent view of the crater and surroundings will await you. From here, you can look down and see clearly the path you have taken up! The photographs will give you a good idea on what to expect along the way :)
