Alternative trails for your Taal volcano trek


- Calauit trail package (currently closed)
This trail will allow you to go down to where the crater lake is and see the volcanic activities really up close.
1 hour and 30-minute trek, one way. The trail is steep and less child-friendly (at least 10 year old). Only for adventurous seekers!

- Mt. Tabaro trail package
4 to 5 hour trek to reach first the main crater lake ridge and then the twin craters of Mount Tabaro, site of the last eruption of Taal Volcano, and its (dry) lava fields. Trail is not well established on some parts so you should be an experienced trekker if you chose this exploration package

- Ambassador Kenney trail package
This trail will lead you to the rim of the main crater (like the regular trail) but with less crowd, more shade and no dust. 30-45 minute walk through the forest. This is the easiest trail but you won't see volcanic activity.

Information before you have your Taal volcano tour


taal tours
Once one the most massive volcano in the world, the old Taal volcano collapsed several thousand years ago. The result was the Taal caldera. Tagaytay lies on the rim of this old cadera, 630 meters above Taal lake. Taal lake is a 25 x 30 kilometer-wide lake located within the Taal caldera. The Taal lake is about 150 meters deep.
Once part of the sea (Balayan Bay), Taal lake became a freshwater lake after the eruptions on the 18th century when the volcanic deposits separated the bay from the Taal lake. Because of this phenomenon, Taal lake has kept some unique species who adapted from sea water to freshwater, like Tawilis (the world's only freshwater sardine) or Hydrophis semperi, a sea snake.
