About Tagaytay and Taal Volcano



Topography
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
(now People's Park in the Sky)  in the east with elevations averaging
about  610  metres   (2,000 ft)  above  sea  level.  Mount Sungay,  in
Tagaytay, is the highest point of the province of Cavite at 709 metres
(2,326 ft).

The  ridge,   which  overlooks  Taal  Lake in  Batangas   province,  is
actually  the  edge of Taal Caldera. The 25-by-30-kilometre (16 mi ×
19 mi)  wide  cavity   is  partially  filled  by Taal Lake.[6] 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.
