Mt. Kanlaon

On my way home from Cebu, I was able to capture the beautiful Mt. Kanlaon with my lense. While I frequent Cebu, its the first that I was able to get a good view of the volcano.Kanlaon Volcano, also spelled as Kanla-on or Canlaon, is an active volcano on Negros island in central Philippines. The stratovolcano straddles the provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental, approximately 30 km (19 mi) southeast of Bacolod City, the capital and most populous city of Negros Occidental.

The volcano is a favorite spot for mountain climbers and is the centerpiece of Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park .  It is one of the active volcanoes in the Philippines and part of the Pacific ring of fire.

Kanlaon has a peak elevation of 2,435 m (7,989 ft) with a base diameter of 30 km (19 mi) and is dotted with pyroclastic cones and craters. Just below and north of the summit is the active Lugud crater. North of Lugud is a 2 by 0.8 km (1.2 by 0.50 mi) caldera, known as Margaja Valley, with acrater lake.[3]

The volcano has three hot springs on its slopes: Mambucal Hot Springs on the northwest, Bucalan Hot Spring, Bungol Hot Spring. Its adjacent volcanic edifices are Mt. Silay and Mt. Mandalagan, north of Kanlaon.
