Mount Labo volcano is located SW of the city of Daet at the northwestern end of the Bicol Volcanic Arc on Luzon Island, Philippines.
It is a forested, andesitic stratovolcano with a basal diameter of 24 km. Labo last erupted about 27,000 years ago, but still shows geothermal activity, in the form of warm and hot springs. There is geothermal exploration near Labo volcano.
The Labo stratovolcano has erupted many andesitic-to-dacitic flank lava domes. Its earliest eruptions date back 580,000 years ago and constructed lava domes on the northern side of the complex. The present stratovolcano started to be built about 270,000 years ago. The latest known activity occurred 27,000 years ago and produced pyroclastic flows from the summit vent.
