Mount Iriga is a stratovolcano about a kilometre from Lake Buhi. It rises 1,196 m (3,924 ft) with a base diameter of 10 kilometres (6.2 mi).[1][2] It has a large crater probably formed from a huge eruption.

Iriga erupted in 1628 and 1642.[2] Iriga is generally known for its phreatic explosions. After these eruptions, it remains dormant as of now.
