compound volcano 1102 m / 3,615 ft
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.

The dominantly andesitic Pocdol Mountains form a triangle-shaped area of ca 225 sq km size. The domes and cones in the western part of the complex are old and eroded, but those in the eastern part appear to be much younger.
