My kids are adventurous by nature, but I guess most kids are. When I told them we were going to ride horses up a volcano, they basically scream with excitement. I am sure they didn’t know much of what they were going to see but I know for sure that they wanted to see a volcano, a first for them. And when I said we are going to one of the smallest volcanoes in the world, they kept quiet. And I left it at that.
Well… would you dare to trek up even the smallest active volcano is the world? It has been recorded to have erupted 33 times and the last eruption was 40 years ago, which is probably why people don’t hesitate to visit this beautiful tiny beast. If you are interested to know about our experience then continue reading and if you happen to have a daring kind of personality then hit me up and I would love to help you plan your next volcano adventure.
About 40 miles south of Manila, you will find the town of Talisay, which is where most people get a boat ride across the lake to the base of the Taal Volcano. Traffic getting out of Manila can be heavy so your best bet is to get on the road as early as possible. A day trip to Taal is about the best adventure you can do if you have an extra day and want to get out of the hustle and bustle in Manila.
