Taal (Volcano Week 3)

Friday, 17th October 2008 by

Taal Volcano is another active stratovolcano, this time on the island of Luzon in the Philippines, and at only 406 metres, it is known as the world’s smallest volcano.

Actually Taal's crater has a lake in it... sadly the high-res imagery here didn't quite cover the crater lake, but this aerial photograph reveals that in the crater lake itself actually contains a tiny little island - which is no less than the world's largest island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island!

See our post from last year's Island Week 2 for loads more crazy island/lake recursion.
