Mount Labo is a compound volcano at the NW end of the Bicol Peninsula in SE Luzon, SW of the city of Daet. The forested 1544-m-high andesitic stratovolcano is surrounded by numerous andesitic-to-dacitic satellitic lava domes. Mid-Pleistocene eruptions beginning about 580,000 years ago formed lava domes on the northern side of the complex. The present edifice was formed beginning about 270,000 years ago, and flank lava dome emplacement took place from about 200,000 to about 40,000 years ago. The latest activity from Mt. Labo produced pyroclastic flows from the summit cone about 27,000 years ago. Thermal activity in the form of hot and warm springs continues, and Mount Labo has been the object of an extensive geothermal exploration program.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Labo. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Labo 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.

|Forested Labo volcano lies between the Ragay Gulf (lower left) and Pacific Ocean (top) at the NW end of the Bicol Peninsula in SE Luzon. The forested 1544-m-high andesitic stratovolcano is surrounded by numerous andesitic-to-dacitic satellitic lava domes. Eruptive activity ceased during the Pleistocene, but thermal activity in the form of hot and warm springs continues, and Mount Labo has been the object of an extensive geothermal exploration program.

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.
