Masaraga volcano (left in the picture) with its taller and active neighbor, the Mayon stratovolcano seen during approach for Legazpi airport.

Masaraga is a stratovolcano with a pointed top located 10 km NW of Mayon volcano on Luzon Island in the Philippines.
The flanks of the andesitic-to-ryholitic volcano are covered by forested thick lava flows, indicating no recent eruptions, but it is thought that it has erupted during the past 10,000 years and might still be active.
