Pocdol Mountains volcano
Luzon Island (Philippines), 13.05°N / 123.96°E
Current status: normal or dormant (1 out of 5)
The volcanic Pocdol Mountains (also known as Bacon-Manito complex) are a group of volcanic cones between Saragon Bay and Albay Gulf in southern Luzon.
Some of the cones are probably only a few thousands of years old. A fumarole field and a geyser are found in the area, suggesting it might be still volcanically active.
Pocdol Mountains volcano eruptions: unknown, none in recorded history
