Forested Bud Dajo cinder cone is one of numerous pyroclastic cones and craters that dot 60-km-wide Jolo Island at the SW end of the Philippines archipelago. Bud Dajo (or Buddajo) is a young basaltic cinder cone that reaches 620 m elevation; nearby cones are Matanding, Guimba, and Sungal. Hot springs have been reported at craters on Cagayan Sulu, and solfataras at Siit Lake. A tsunami accompanied a possible submarine eruption in 1897.
