2018/05/28 Hiking Taal Volcano
π 2018-05-28 01:01 in Hiking, Philippines
Due to our Corregidor Island tour getting cancelled that day, we had to look for another tour for that day at the last minute, and we settled for Taal Volcano. It's a cool place, crater lake within crater lake:


We went with Bryan Malvataan, +63 917 203 2792, https://www.facebook.com/ilovetaalvolcano/ and he took good care of us, as well as found a driver to get us from/to Manila to his location at a much much better price than we would have gotten from a tour operator.

It's a 2H-ish drive from Manila, then a boat ride to the first island. From there, you take horses or hike up (not a very difficult hike, maybe 30mn if you're in good shape, 60mn if not), and then you ge the view of a crater lake while being on an island that is itself in a crater lake. Not bad :)

After lunch, our driver took us to Picnic Grove. It had a so so nature trail with a couple ziplines and a very small animal interaction place that wasn't the best we've seen, but it was super cheap, so that was hard to argue :)
