Famed Tagaytay Ridge, one of the most popular attractions outside of
Metro Manila, entices with one of the most unforgettable vistas-- the Taal Lake and Volcano Island.
A mere 60 kilometers south of Manila, Tagaytay Ridge was once the caldera of an old volcano which rose some 5000 to 6000 meters high. As a result of a powerful eruption many years ago, a new volcano Taal rose from the center of the lake. Taal is considered one of the smallest volcanoes in the world but one of the most active.
|From the ridge, look down onto Taal Volcano with its tiny crater rising from a lake, which is the crater of a large volcano, now extinct. Down below, take a glimpse of fishing villages on the lake shores.|
