To get to the rim of Taal Volcano, you can hike or take a horse. When I saw small horses on the island, I didn’t feel like riding them; I decided to hike and it was a good choice. The hike is not difficult, just be aware of heat (take enough water) and a characteristic smell (it’s an active volcano).
Before starting a hike, you’ll have to cross the lake using this interesting canoe (see picture).
Lot’s of fun. 😉
