The triangular-shaped Pocdol Mountains volcanic range, also known as the Bacon-Manito complex, covers an area of about 225 sq km between Saragon Bay and Albay Gulf in southern Luzon, SE of Mayon volcano. Volcanic cones in the western part of the complex are dissected, but those in the eastern part are morphologically youthful. Several Pleistocene K-Ar dates have been obtained from the volcanic complex. The age of its latest eruptions is not known, but a fumarole field that contains a geyser is located near the summit of the compound, dominantly andesitic volcanic complex.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Pocdol Mountains. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Pocdol Mountains page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

|The linear Pocdol Mountains lie between Saragon Bay and the Albay Gulf in southern Luzon. This view is from the south, near the town of Sosogon. A fumarole field that contains a geyser is located near the summit. Little is known of the geologic history of the Pocdol Mountains.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
