View of Taal Volcano from Picnic Grove, Tagaytayhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Taal_Volcano.jpg
is a volcano on the island of Luzon
in the Philippines. Today it comprises the Taal Caldera, which was formed by a very powerful eruption during prehistoric times, surrounded by Lake Taal. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the Philippines, due to its picturesque setting. Most visitors come to view Taal Volcano from viewpoints at the Tagaytay Ridge.
Taal Volcano is classified as one of the active volcanoes of the Philippines, and as such, as closely monitored for any signs of activity. Although it has not erupted since 1977, Taal Volcano did show some signs of unrest since 1991. As such, the Philippines Institute of Volcanology and Seismology often issues warnings whenever Taal Volcanoes seem to throw a fit.
How to visit the Taal Volcano
Most visitors go there on day tours from Manila. If you wish to go there on your own, you can either take the bus heading for Tagaytay or drive there by taxi or private car. You can board a jeepney bound for Tagaytay or Batangas in front of Starmall at the corner of EDSA and Shaw Boulevard. The fare is PnP150.
