The broad Cuernos de Negros volcanic complex is seen here from the small island of Apo, 7 km SE of the city of Zamboanguita at the southern end of Negros Island. The eastern side of the complex consists of two cones and a lava dome with two crater lakes up to 1.5 km in diameter. The small summit crater of Magaso, the highest peak of the complex, rises above the city of Dumaguete and contains fumaroles. The Palinpinon geothermal field is located on the north side of the volcano. Photo by Arne Kuilman, 2007.
