Mayon Volcano, Philippines, Volcano photo
Mayon Volcano, Philippines

Mayon volcano in the Philippines is one of Earth's best examples of a classic, conical stratovolcano.

Its symmetrical morphology is the exception rather than the rule, and is the result of eruptions that are restricted to a single central conduit at the summit of the volcano.

Eruptions are frequent enough at Mayon, the most active volcano in the Philippines, to overcome erosive forces that quickly modify the slopes of most volcanoes.
