Apo volcano is the highest mountain in the Philippines, and its name means "Master" or "Grandfather". There are no known historic eruptions, but the volcano is considered still active.


Apo volcano is an a basaltic to basaltic-andesitic stratovolcano and part of the Central Mindanao Arc, but its volcanic history is poorly known. The densely forested volcano has a flat summit with 3 peaks, the highest of which in the SW is known as Davao volcano and has a 500 m wide crater with a small lake.
The youngest crater is located on the northern peak. Several fumaroles and sulfur deposits occur on the volcano, most notably fumaroles along a fissure on the SE side down to 2400 m elevation.
The Mt. Apo Geothermal Field is a 8.4 km2 geothermal exploration field near Mt Apo, which has been being exploited since October 1996.
