Balatukan volcano

compound volcano 2450 m / 8,038 ft
Mindanao, Philippines, 8.77°N / 124.98°E
Current status: (probably) extinct (0 out of 5)

Balatukan (also known as Balingoan or Balatocan) is a massive compound stratovolcano on the SW shore of Gingoog Bay, 15 km SW of Gingoog city in north-central Mindanao, opposite Camiguin Island, Philippines.
Lava flows on its flanks are 140,000 years old and it is not known whether there are younger volcanic products. Although the volcano still has fumarolic activity, it might be extinct, as the strong degree of erosion of its flanks suggests.
