Masaraga is a sharp-topped, forested stratovolcano that rises to 1328 m NW of Mayon volcano. Thick lava flows occur on the flanks of this andesitic-to-ryholitic volcano. Masaraga was classified as Holocene by the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI, 1973), and K-Ar dates of zero age were obtained from this volcano.
