Well, okay, officially the hike is rated as “easy” BUT… Because this is a semi-active volcano (you will see stream rising from rock formations during your hike) it can get a little warm of your trek during warm to hot days. On the day we went, it was HOT. At every rest-stop we passed there were hikers resting, covered in sweat. We did it the easy way (by horseback). Taking the Taal Volcano Tour by horseback is definitely worth it. Watch the video to see the difference.
Kayangan Lake, being as popular as it is, usually has a multitude of tourists and boats flanking the gateway to the lake and effectively block the view and ruining many great shots and pictures – but what could you expect? And, yes, this as the case when we arrived. Kayangan Lake has been plastered on plenty of travel websites and social media accounts; it’s understandable that the crowds have come.
The water is extremely clear and the colors are amazing. While it puts Coron on the map for most visitors, these beautiful islands hold many more amazing sights as well. Here is everything you need to know when planning a trip to Kayangan Lake.
There’s a little wooden walkway and platform to stash your things if you go for a swim. Don’t expect privacy or quiet, though, as the lagoon where boats unload passengers looks like a mall parking lot at noon. Gary brought his drone but sadly he decided not to use it because of the crowds, the limited time we had.
Since I remember I’ve always been in love with the mountains. They’ve always been with me, even in my earliest childhood. Can you hear the mountains calling to you also?
That will just be the culmination of wonders, in an action-packed expedition to the world-famous volcano, whose eruption brought forth a desolate landscape that can aptly be described as ‘out of this world’.
The 45-minute 4×4 drive to the foot of the mountain from Capas, Tarlac, is exhilirating; you will feel as if you were on a Disneyland ride in real life, as the 4×4 jeep crosses varicolored streams and an endless plain of volcanic sand.
The island of Bali is much more than just a tropical paradise. Being so rich and diverse in culture, adventure, shopping and the odd opportunity for deep personal growth you don’t need to look too far to find things to do in Bali.
Both Indonesian islands have their own strengths and weaknesses but also are very similar in their own way. While Bali is renowned for it’s volcanic mountains, amazing beaches, picturesque rice paddies and coral reefs.. How does it compare to Lombok?
