Taal Volcano: A Perilous Nature Amidst the Philippines' Active Landscape

Taal volcano, though small in size, has earned a reputation for its perilous nature, being one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines, as acknowledged by the country's Institute of Volcanology and Seismology. Classified as a "complex volcano," it boasts several eruption points that have evolved over time. Located in the middle of a lake approximately 70km south of Manila, Taal's volatile history has led to significant disruptions. In 2020, its massive ash cloud prompted flight cancellations and the closure of schools and offices, raising fears of an explosive eruption. The authorities took swift action, evacuating thousands of people to ensure their safety.
