Amorong volcano a small lava dome in NW Luzon Island, 80 km NNE of Pinatubo volcano, and belongs to the Eastern Volcanic Chain or Balungao Group, a chain of subduction volcanoes behind the Manila Trench.
It is the only of a group of several lava domes that still has fumarolic activity. It was active from about 740,000 years ago.

Background:
