How many and which Volkanoes are active in the Philippines?

As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, the Philippines is home to several active volcanoes. The exact number and status of these volcanoes can change over time, as volcanic activity can vary. Some of the well-known active volcanoes in the Philippines include:

  1. Mount Mayon (Mayon Volcano): Located in the province of Albay, Mount Mayon is one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines. It is famous for its near-perfect cone shape.
  2. Mount Taal (Taal Volcano): Taal is another highly active volcano and is situated on an island in Taal Lake, in Batangas province. It has had several eruptions in the past, with the most recent significant eruption occurring in January 2020.
  3. Mount Pinatubo (Mount Pinatubo): While Pinatubo had a major eruption in 1991, it is still considered active, and there can be ongoing volcanic activity in the region.
  4. Mount Bulusan (Bulusan Volcano): Located in Sorsogon province, Mount Bulusan is another active volcano that has experienced several eruptions in the past.
  5. Mount Kanlaon (Kanlaon Volcano): Mount Kanlaon is located in Negros Island and is one of the most active volcanoes in the Visayas region.
  6. Mount Hibok-Hibok (Hibok-Hibok Volcano): Found on Camiguin Island, Mount Hibok-Hibok is another active volcano in the Philippines.

Please note that the status of these volcanoes can change, and new information may have become available since my last update. It’s essential to monitor the latest information from local volcanic monitoring agencies and authorities for the most up-to-date information on the status of these volcanoes and any potential volcanic hazards.
