Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Cagua
The northernmost active volcano in Luzon is Mount Cagua, a 1133-m-high stratovolcano at the NE tip of Luzon. The forested volcano is locally known as the "Mountain of Fire." A phreatic explosion in 1860 may have been accompanied by a pyroclastic flow. Strong solfataric activity occurred in 1907, and thermal areas are located near the summit crater and on the NW to NNE flanks. Photo courtesy of PHIVOLCS.
