When I was young, I thought the Taal volcano is really the one that I saw every time we go up to Tagaytay. It is not! I believe in that for almost I don’t know years of my life. Lol! The crater of the volcano is right behind that Mountain. The one that we saw every time we go to Tagaytay is Mt. Binintiang Malaki.
Here are some of the photos from our recent hike:
From Manila ride a bus going to Nasugbu or Tagaytay. Drop by at Olivarez then there ride a tricycle. Tell the driver to drop you off at Talisay port. Then at the drop off point ride a boat.
- Bring at least 1 liter of water or energy drink with you.
- Bring chocolates or any sweet
- Bring extra clothes, towel or slipper for your tired feet
- Trekking is better than riding a horse
- The food and drinks there is a bit expensive
- The best haggler saves more. 😀
