View of Taal Volcano
Unbeknownst to many, what we now call Taal Lake is actually the caldera of a massive ancient volcano. But don’t panic, only the tiny island in the middle of the lake remains active. But this geological history explains a lot about Tagaytay especially its location, geography, and topography.
Tagaytay is perched on the edge of this caldera, giving it the front seat when it comes to Taal Volcano vistas. And what a difference a view makes! For many years, this priceless view has provided an aesthetic advantage for commercial establishments like restaurants and hotels in Tagaytay and considerably helped propel the city’s economy.
