Tagaytay's built-up areas including the urban center is situated in the relatively l evel top of the caldera rim but beyond the edge are deep ravines that drop straight down to Taal Lake. The portions adjoining the municipalities of Mendez, Indang, Amadeo and Silang are level to nearly level areas interspersed with very gently sloping surface. Across the southern edge of the lake on the opposite side of the city is Mount Macolod, the highest point of the Taal Caldera rim.
