Poorly known Latukan volcano lies in the center of a chain of young E-W-trending stratovolcanoes in NW Mindanao SE of Lake Lanao. Latukan is flanked on the west by Makaturing volcano and on the NE by the historically active Ragang volcano. Latukan was listed as an active volcano in the Catalog of Active Volcanoes of the World (Neumann van Padang, 1953), but the age of its most recent eruptions is not known. The 2338-m-high Latukan lies in an area of dominantly basaltic volcanoes west of the cordillera in central Mindanao.
