Despite its status of being one of the most dangerous active volcanoes in the world, Taal Volcano is still one of the most visited sites in the Philippines by both local and foreign tourists. It's known to people as the petite volcano located on an island within Taal Lake.

According to My Joy Online, Taal Volcano is located 55 kilometers south of Manila, the capital city of the Philippines. Despite being only 311 meters tall, it has already erupted 30 times since the 16th century, killing more than 5,000 people. Eight of its eruptions happened between the 1960s and 1970s.

Since 1977, Taal Volcano has become calm, silent and welcoming to many tourists as this volcano-in-an-island-within-the-lake adjacent to the breezy city of Tagaytay, a popular getaway for tourists in the Philippines. Popular activities to do here are trekking, horse riding, and sightseeing.

In an article published by CNN, in order to go to Taal Volcano, the first step is to rent an outrigger boat. Sailing across the blue waters of Taal Lake to the volcano island would take 15 minutes and would cost $10 per person. One could hire a boat for themselves or they could join a group tour.

Upon arriving at the main jetty on volcano island where Taal Volcano is located, tourists have the options of trekking for 30 to 40 minutes or do some horseback riding. If one prefers to have a tourist guide with them, it would cost them $20 to be accompanied by the local residents of the island. Hiking boots or running shoes are highly advised to be used by tourists if they are going to the island.

But once going higher on the volcano island's slope, the risk is worth trying for. Not only that one could see the wonder and majesty of Taal Volcano, they could also see the breathtaking view of Taal Lake and Tagaytay.
