Makaturing volcano rises above the shore of Illana Bay at the west end of a chain of volcanoes in central Mindanao. Eruptions at one time attributed to Makaturing were ascribed to neighboring Ragang volcano to the east by the Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World (Neumann van Padang, 1953), but PHIVOLCS (2004) listed eruptions for Makaturing, several of which are in the same year as those from Ragang volcano. A dense cover of vegetation that blankets Makaturing suggests long quiescence, but solfataric activity continues.
