Mount Cabalían, at the SE tip of Leyte Island, is dissected by steep radial ridges that are moderately to thickly vegetated. A lake fills the summit crater of the 945-m-high andesitic volcano, which has an irregular rim with two high peaks on the southern side. A thermoluminescence date of about 510,000 yrs BP was obtained from Cantoloc stratovolcano immediately to the NW. A radiocarbon date of about 135 +/- 30 yrs BP was obtained from a pyroclastic-flow deposit from Cabalían. Hot springs are found on the east and west flanks of Cabalían.

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

|Mount Cabalían occupies the rounded peninsula (right), at the SE tip of Leyte Island, rising above Cabalían Bay (center) and Surigao Strait (right). Sogod Bay is at the left. The volcano is dissected by steep radial ridges that are moderately to thickly vegetated. Cloud banks obscure the summit of the volcano, which contains a crater lake. Hot springs are found on the east and west flanks of Cabalían.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
