Makaturing is a stratovolcano at the shore of Illana Bay located about 40 km South of Marawi city, in central Mindanao, Philippines.
It is part of the Central Mindanao Arc. Many eruptions reported from Makaturing were actually from neighboring Ragang volcano, and there are only 2 confirmed historic eruptions at Makaturing, the last being in 1882.
Makaturing volcano is densely vegetated at present, but there is solfataric activity suggesting that the volcano is only dormant.
