Photo Gallery


Ragang volcano (above and to the right of the center of this Space Shuttle image) rises to 2815 m in central Mindanao. Illana Bay lies to the SW at the lower left, and most of Lake Lanao can be seen at the upper left. Ragang is the most frequently active volcano on the large southern Philippines island of Mindanao. Historical eruptions, many of which were at one time attributed to neighboring Makaturing volcano, have been recorded since 1765. Makaturing and Latukan volcanoes are also visible to the SW of Ragang on this image.
