Balatukan (also known as Balingoan or Balatocan) is a massive compound stratovolcano that rises above the SW shore of Gingoog Bay in north-central Mindanao, opposite Camiguin Island. Lava flows on its flanks have Pleistocene ages. Although the volcano currently displays fumarolic activity, it is extensively eroded and the age of its latest eruption is not known.
