A short trek to Taal Volcano Crater

From Talisay Batangas, rent a private boat going to Taal Volcano Island. It will cost you PhP1500 for a round trip boat ride and additional PhP500 for “life guard” fee. And from the port of Taal Volcano Island, you may rent a horse worth PhP1500/each or hire a local guide for PhP1000/group and additional “Tourist Fee” PhP50/person. Once settled, they will give you tickets going to the trail. You will reach the viewing deck after an hour of dusty trail. Bring face mask because you will share the trail with horses with tourist on it.

In the viewing deck, try the fresh cold buko for PhP100 and ask your guide to bring you to “pulang lupa” peak. 😉 Enjoy the view! Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints 😉

By the way, Also prepare another PhP50 for the “bridge” fee. ;0

Talisay, Batangas. Lot’s of friendly people and very accommodating.

Lunch at Milan’s Native Foods Restaurant and Grill. This is my new favorite Bulalohan! 🙂
