Circling the planet via social media are spectacular images of several-kilometer high ash clouds intermittently illuminated with mesmerizing volcanic.
On 14 February 2020, this was then lowered from Alert Level 3 to 2 to reflect an overall decreasing volcanic earthquake activity, and steam and gas emissions at the main crater of Taal. On 19 March 2020, the Alert Level was then lowered again from 2 to 1. Despite the lowering of the Alert Level, PHIVOLCS continued to warn that the unrest had not completely stopped, with the persisting.
The state volcanology agency Phivolcs reported that Taal Volcano emits an increased amount of sulfur dioxide and generates around 233 volcanic earthquakes in just a day. On Tuesday (February 4, 2020), the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology reported that Taal Volcano continues to show signs of unrest and irregularities.Taal volcano in the Philippines started erupting at 06:04 UTC on January 12, 2020, for the first time since 1977. The volcanic ash cloud is reaching up to 16.7 km (55 000 feet) above sea level, according to data provided by the Tokyo VAAC.

Taal Volcano, the second most active volcano in the country and located around 50 kilometers south of Manila, erupted on Jan. 12 and 13, displacing 376,327 people or 98,187 families.
Phivolcs says on Saturday, February 1, that Taal Volcano's latest harmonic tremor lasted 3 minutes. It indicates continuing movement of magma.
The best time to trek the Taal crater is during the early morning. It get's really hot in the middle of the day. About 30 mins boat ride (P2,500.00) from Talisay, Batangas to reach the island. You have a choice of hiking or horse back riding going to the crater. A P500.00.
