But nature's beauty and fortitude against onslaught of "progress" is a thing to behold. A long time ago, the entire area surrounding Taal was fields, pasture. Now all free vista points are occupied by retail establishments which block the view from the road. Not only...More

While the view of the crater is cool (I don’t think it’s truly worth the journey/cost...) the treatment, condition and clear abuse of the horses that are used and sold to you to trek up to the crater is heartbreaking. The horses have sores on...More
