Photo Gallery

The Sarangani Islands lie about 20 km across Sarangani Strait from the Batulaki Peninsula (upper left), which forms the southern tip of Mindanao Island. Balut volcano, also known as Sanguil, occupies the lower island in this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper left). The 862-m-high volcano was once thought to be the source of a major eruption in 1641 CE that turned out to have been from Parker volcano, 80 km to the NW on Mindanao. The volcano displays hot springs and thermally altered ground on its flanks.
