The grass-covered Musuan volcano, also known as Calayo, is an isolated, andesitic-to-dacitic lava dome and tuff cone that rises to 646 m above flat farmland in the province of Bukidnon in central Mindanao. A single eruption, consisting of a possible phreatic explosion that "burned everything around it," was reported by a Jesuit priest to have occurred four years prior to his 1891 visit.
