About Tagaytay and Taal Volcano
The southern and eastern portions of Tagaytay City are covered by
hills and mountains which is generally forests and open grasslands.
The city lies along Tagaytay Ridge, a ridge stretching about 32
kilometres (20 mi) from Mount Batulao in the west to Mount Sungay

The ridge, which overlooks Taal Lake in Batangas province, is

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.
