The symmetrical forested summit of Matutum stratovolcano rises to 2293 m above farmlands in southern Mindanao. A well-preserved 320-m-wide crater is breached by three gorges and has a 120-m-deep, densely forested floor. Widespread silicic pyroclastic-flow deposits surround the volcano. A report that stated that Matutum volcano was "smoking" on March 7, 1911 was the only indication of possible historical activity from the volcano.

The forested, symmetrical Matutum stratovolcano rises to 2293 m in southern Mindanao. The summit of the andesitic volcano is truncated by a well-preserved 320-m-wide crater that is breached by three gorges and has a 120-m-deep, densely forested floor. Widespread silicic pyroclastic-flow deposits surround the volcano, which overlooks the major city of General Santos, about 30 km to the SSE. The volcano was reported to be "smoking" in 1911.
