"Mount Cabalían, at the SE tip of Leyte Island, is dissected by steep radial ridges that are moderately to thickly vegetated. A lake fills the summit crater of the 945-m-high andesitic volcano, which has an irregular rim with two high peaks on the southern side. A thermoluminescence date of about 510,000 yrs BP was obtained from Cantoloc stratovolcano immediately to the NW. A radiocarbon date of about 135 +/- 30 yrs BP was obtained from a pyroclastic-flow deposit from Cabalían. Hot springs are found on the east and west flanks of Cabalían."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
