Taal Volcano in Taal Lake
Taal is one of the lowest volcanoes in the world with just 311 meters elevation. It is a caldera volcano near the middle of Taal Lake.
Even with its size, Taal is recognized as the second most active volcano in the Philippines with 38 recorded historical eruptions. Some of the eruptions were so violent, displacing thousands of residents in nearby towns and cities. Overall, more than 5,000 lives were lost caused by the volcano due to scalding, injuries, or suffocation.
Despite the devastation caused by the eruptions, Taal remains one of the scenic natural attractions in the Philippines therefore earning the nickname “a beautiful disaster”. Both the lake and the volcano are a popular backdrop when in Tagaytay City. Tourists can take a boat to the volcano or hike up to the crater.
