Paco volcano (also known as Manlayao) occupies the large peninsula forming the NE tip of Mindanao, north of Lake Mainit (bottom). The volcano is truncated by two nested calderas, 2.5 and 5 km in diameter and is located east of the N-S-trending Philippine Fault that cuts across eastern Mindanao and defines the western shoreline of the peninsula in this Landsat image. Legends record a major caldera collapse eruption, although the age of the last eruption is not known.
