Makaturing volcano (left of center) rises NE of Illana Bay (lower left) and south of Lake Lanao (upper left) at the west end of a chain of volcanoes in central Mindanao. Several prominent pyroclastic cones are visible on its flanks. Eruptions from this volcanic chain (including Latukan volcano, right-center) have variously been attributed to Makaturing and the historically active Ragang volcano (far right-center).
