Geocachers will need to travel by boat and on horseback to get to the Geocache of the Week.
Taal Volcano (GC1GJ6N) is part of a chain of volcanoes located on the western side of the island of Luzon in the Philippines.
Taal Volcano presents one of the most charming and picturesque views and is one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines, with its last eruption occurring in 1977.
Geocachers who make the trip to this volcano often dive into Crater Lake – a lake inside the volcano’s crater that holds sulfuric content – to celebrate their trip.
A geocacher who embarked on this journey writes, “Unbelievable, amazing, what a trip and very beautiful view! It was a real adventure to reach the rim of the crater. I used a boat and I walked to the rim of the crater. The questions were a real challenge, but I did it! Thanks a lot for this EarthCache.”
The 112 images on the cache page have done a fantastic job revealing the volcano’s beauty and capturing geocachers’ experiences.
