Holiday Raining Trek but it was very satisfying. Having a boat ride and you have a choice to take donkey or walk. It is better to walk, a bit challenging good for beginners. The steam if you are near the crater was very amazing. 1....More

It is relatively an easy hike since we have a guide, there are stations where you can rest and there is a clear path to follow. It still is challenging because of the heat and some of the roads are steep especially on the last...More

Make sure to bring plenty of water, bottled water in the island is pricey. Bring mask, extra shirt, towel, cap etc. Renting a boat would cost 2000 for maximum of 7 people. There will be like 10-15 minutes boat ride to Taal. Upon arrival you...More

Yes, I always see this volcano from afar. But it's always a pleasing site whenever I am in the area of Tagaytay, Batangas. The place is soo cool and breezy. I've always visited Tagaytay just to see the beautiful site of Taal Volcano.
