The City of Tagaytay (Filipino: Lungsod ng Tagaytay) is a
component city in the province of Cavite, in the Philippines. It is
one of the country's most popular tourist destinations because of
outstanding scenery and cooler climate provided by its high
altitude. Tagaytay overlooks Taal Lake in Batangas and provides
one of the iconic views of the Philippines, the view of Taal
Volcano Island in the middle of the lake, viewable from several
vantage points in the city.

Tagaytay is relatively close to the capital city of Manila, only 55
km (34 mi) away via Aguinaldo Highway, providing an easy
escape for the locals from the heat of the big city.
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.[4] Mount Sungay, in Tagaytay, is the highest
point of the province of Cavite at 709 metres (2,326

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 level 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.
