Tagaytay Ridge

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.
