Taal Volcano is located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, about 50 kilometers away from the capital Manila. In recent history, the volcano killed about 5,000 people.
Taal (Luzon) is the smallest volcano in the world, but one of the most active, called the "Ring of Fire" (three times far into the ruins of the city that bears his name). Very sinuous shores, marshy tall and daring not convenient for navigation, especially as it is hindered by the presence of coral reefs.
Taal is one of the most impressive volcanoes in Philippines, because the volcano is more a complex of volcanoes than a simple volcano. In addition, here there is Lake Taal. Over time, Taal volcano erupted several times, but most recently happened in 1977. Since then there have been similar events but Taal remained one of the most interesting places and landscapes on the surrounding of Manila.
Which is absolutely exciting is that Taal volcano is a mountain that was formed in the middle of a lake. In the crater was formed a volcanic lake with a small rocky island. Taal is known as "volcano inside the volcano" because Lake Taal was once a volcano.
Going in search of this volcano is an experience exciting and also quite frightening, because any time this volcano can make more victims. Wonder who wants to try…
