Arayat is a forested stratovolcano above the flat Central Plain of Luzon Island and located NE of Angeles city, Philippines. It belongs to the Eastern Volcanic Chain, which includes Mounts Balungao, Cuyapo, Amorong and Arayat volcanoes.
Mt. Arayat's cone is probably built upon an older crater of 900 m diameter, whose remnants form the northern (1026 m) and southern (920 m) peaks.
There are no known eruptions in historic times, but weak fumarolic activity is present on the NW summit of Arayat volcano.
