Trek the Taal Volcano on an 8-hour adventure tour from Manila and see one of the most scenic areas of the Philippines within easy access of the capital. You will drive to Tagaytay City to head for Volcano Island, location of one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines. Less than 2 hours from Manila, Tagaytay City offers cooler weather and dramatic views of Taal Lake and Volcano Island.
Head over to the island by boat, where a trekking guide will lead you on a hike to conquer the mountain. A complex volcano of crater lakes and tuff cones, Taal is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Admire the expanse of sulfuric water, where paraws, kayaks and banana boats are available to rent. If you fancy seeing Taal from a different perspective, you will have the option to rent horses.
Just south of Manila, Philippines, about an hour and a half drive, you will find a place where locals and tourists go for relaxation. Tagaytay City is situated more than 650 meters above sea level. The Taal Volcano is the main attraction of Tagaytay City. Since Tagaytay City is located on a mountain ridge, it is a good place to have a breathtaking view of Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. Tagaytay City has also a great panoramic view of the neighboring provinces.
Tagaytay City is considered as a haven for locals and tourists because of its climate. Situated on the mountaintop, Tagaytay City is a splendid place for vacation and dining hangouts. Fabulous food is one thing that Tagaytay City’s specialty restaurants offer (own expense).
