A hike to the crater of Taal Volcano - A perfect adventure getaway!
Since we are staying from Cavite, Tagaytay is not really far away from us. And Tagaytay is not complete with out looking at this famous Taal Volcano.
Our friend from the UK arrived few days ago and adding to her itinerary is a hike to Taal Volcano together with our dogs.
We arrived very early in Tagaytay and just asked people along the streets of Tagaytay who were offering boat rides to the volcano. The boat ride fee is around 2000.00 but I'm pretty sure you can haggle to lower the price of the ride. (Please make sure that they wear identification cards). The boat ride is going to take around 30 minutes. The ride can be rough specially if it's windy , it just add more fun to your adventure.
Once you get to the island, you have two options. Whether you rent a horse to take you to the top or you hike. We prefer hiking!
The hiking would take around a maximum of an hour depending on how fast you are walking. You can stop from time to time and enjoy the view. Please make sure you drink lots of water.
Once reaching the top, you get the most amazing view of the crater. And for your information, it's an active volcano so you see smoke coming out from the vents. Where else can you do that?
This was our second time here with our dogs and unfortunately Mocha's last adventure as he passed away 4th of March 2013. :(
Anyway, hiking in Taal Volcano really should be in your list if you want to do some hiking adventure.The feeling that you are walking on an active volcano and one of the smallest volcano in world, it's priceless!
