World-renowned for its near-perfect cone shape, Mayon Volcano is the province’s most iconic landmark. Towering almost 8,000 feet above sea level, the volcano dominates the center of three lively cities and 15 vibrant towns. It gets its name from the local word “Magayon,” which means “beautiful.”

Best known as the Mayon Volcano, Mount Mayon is an active volcano        located in Legaspi City, Albay. It is one of the best nature spot in the       Philippines mainly because of its “perfect cone” formation which is almost in symmetric conical shape.

Bulkang Mayon (locally coined term) is actually the most active volcano in the Philippines with over 48 times recorded eruptions in the past 400 years.
