Taal Volcano, Batangas - PHILIPPINES - UNESCO TENTATIVE
Now that I have all the current UNESCO World Heritage Site from Philippines, I'm starting to swap cards showing the sites that are trying to enter the main list. It's the case of the Taal Volcano, still active but covered with beautiful green vegetation and, acording to the sender there's a big lake inside the crater (but I wonder... if the volcano is active, it must be boiling hot, no?). Thank you very much Raine for sending me another amazing card. This postcard took 28 days to arrive!
Taal Volcano is an active volcano on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. It consists of an island in Lake Taal, which is situated within a caldera formed by an earlier very large eruption. The volcano has an elevation of 600 meters above sea level, the main rock type of which is Olivine Basalt. It is located about 50 km from the country capital, Manila.
