Mount Iraya is a heavily forested stratovolcano located on Batan Island, one of the Batanes Islands, in the province of Batanes, in the Luzon Strait, north of the island of Luzon, in the Philippines. It is part of the Pacific ring of Fire..
I saw its imposing beauty during my first time in Batanes, the 29th province on my list.
Mount Iraya has an elevation of 1,009 metres (3,310 ft) above mean sea level, and a base diameter of 5,500 metres (18,000 ft). The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) considers it as northernmost of the active volcanoes in the Philippines. The last time it erupted was in 1454.
