Vulcan Point

The crater lake on Volcano Island is the largest lake on an island in a lake on an island in the
world.[11] Moreover, this lake contains Vulcan Point, a small rocky island that projects from the
surface of the crater lake, which was the remnant of the old crater floor that is now surrounded
by the 2-kilometre (1.2 mi) wide lake, now referred to as the Main Crater Lake. Vulcan Point is
often cited as the largest third-order island (island in a lake on an island in a lake on an island) in
the world, though this is also claimed to be an unnamed Canadian island located within Victoria
Island.[12][13]

Therefore, Taal has an island within a lake, that is on an island within a lake, that is on an island
within the sea: Vulcan Point Island is within Main Crater Lake, which is on Volcano Island,
which is within Taal Lake, which is on the main Philippine Island Luzon, which is within the
western Pacific Ocean.

Mount Cabalían volcano is located on the SE tip of Leyte Island, Philippines. It is is an andesitic
stratovolcano with steep radial erosion valleys and ridges that are moderately to thickly vegetated.
It contains a summit crater filled by a lake. The crater rim is irregular and forms 2 peaks on the S side. A
recent pyroclastic flow deposit was radiocarbon dated to be only about 150 years old. Hot springs with
temperatures of up to 64 deg C are found on the east and west flanks of Cabalían.

of Southern Leyte (Region VIII) in the Philippines.

Physical Features

Cabalian is classified by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS)


as active with solfataric activity. Radiocarbon dating on a pyroclastic flow deposit from the
volcano estimated that the last eruption was in 1820 +/- 30 years.[2][3]

The cinder cone volcano has an elevation of 945 metres (3,100 ft) with a base diameter of 8.5
kilometres (5.3 mi). The predominant rock type is andesite. Beside solfataras, other thermal
features present are hot springs located on the east and west flank of the volcano. Mainit Hot
Spring in the municipality of Anahawan, Southern Leyte has a temperature of 63.4–63.9 °C
(146.1–147.0 °F).
Mount Cabalían volcano is located on the SE tip of Leyte Island, Philippines. It is is an andesitic
stratovolcano with steep radial erosion valleys and ridges that are moderately to thickly
vegetated.
It contains a summit crater filled by a lake. The crater rim is irregular and forms 2 peaks on the S
side. A recent pyroclastic flow deposit was radiocarbon dated to be only about 150 years old. Hot
springs with temperatures of up to 64 deg C are found on the east and west flanks of Cabalían

Danao Lake
Danao Lake is a 500 m (1,600 ft) wide lake that occupies the summit crater of the volcano. The surface
elevation of the lake is at 733 metres (2,405 ft). This lake is often confused with Lake Danao, which is
located near Ormoc City in Leyte province.

Mahagnao Volcano also known as part of (Mahagnao Volcano Natural Park) is a dormant
volcano located in the Barangay Mahagnao part of the municipality of Burauen province of
Leyte, Philippines. It is also bounded by the municipalities of La Paz and MacArthur.[2] The area
is mostly composed of wetland forests and also the birth of many rivers and streams flowing on
many part of Burauen and on its neighboring towns.

Because of the abundance of fresh waters on its area, Burauen was also known as the Spring
Capital of Leyte.

Physical Features
The summit of the volcano is a steep-walled heavily forested crater that opens to the south with a
peak elevation of 860 metres (2,820 ft). Located on the volcano flanks are fumaroles and
mudpots.

On the southern flank of the volcano, two crater lakes are located, Lakes Danao and Malagsom.
Hot Springs are located on the southern shore of Lake Danao (not to be confused with the other
Lake Danao which is located near Ormoc City and part of Lake Danao Natural Park). Lake
Malagsom is a crater lake with green acidic water.
Rocks primarily found on the volcano are andesite.

Eruptions
An eruption was reported to have occurred in 1895.[3]

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) classifies Mahagnao as
inactive volcano even with the active thermal features of the mountain.[1]

Mahagnao Volcano Natural Park


Mahagnao Volcano is the focal point of the Mahagnao Volcano National Park created on August
27, 1937 with Proclamation No. 184 with an area encompassing 635 hectares (1,570 acres).[4][5]
Under the National Integrated Protected Areas System (NIPAS) of the Department of
Environment and Natural Resources, the park was renamed to Mahagnao Volcano Natural Park
with Proclamation No. 1157 on February 3, 1998.[6][5]
