Photo Gallery

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.
