    ^tokwa't Baboy (tofu & pork)

    All that for Php 550, plus a pitcher of iced tea, good for 2-3 pax. Good deal, I think.

    Was a great day for an easy hike. Cheers all!

    Thanks to anyone who will repost.

    Can someone pls repost #323 & #324 too? Thanks!

    @docmartin - thanks for the reposts

    @betty - it helps that I'm a local and I know what to order. If ever you visit PI again, contact me & I'll hike with you up that mini volcano. Just takes 1 hour. Maybe even less, now that you're in an intensive fitness programme.

    ooops Doc beat me to it.

    Katie, looking at the first shots across the lake to the island you hiked it looks enormous, the volcano must have been huge.

    @docmartin - thnx for the reposts

    @toot - yes, the older volcano must've been massive. The towns surrounding the lake are all part of the collapsed crater. The smaller, newer volcano is still active & rumbles every few years.

    There's a seismology observation tower on Mt Maculot, a nearby mountain that I climbed last year. I think pics of that hike are in the earlier pages of this thread.

    Here's a Google maps pic of Taal Lake, showing the inner crater lake.

    Thanks D48!

    I searched through this thread and saw that I did post pics of my Mt Maculot hike last year (I wasn't sure if I did). At the top of Mt Maculot, you can see Taal Lake and Volcano/ Volcano Island.

    Going to the summit, you'll pass by a volcano monitoring station.

    Pls allow me to pat myself on the back - I've seen the lake & volcano from above, and now I've hiked the volcano itself. Woohoo!

    Cheers and thanks to anyone who will repost.
