The road on the left is leading to Sitio Bagumbayan, wherein a multi-grade extension classes of Cainaman Elementary School is located.
Kanlaon Volcano is an active volcano on Negros island in central Philippines, particularly in Negros Occidental where we reside. The stratovolcano straddles the provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental, approximately 30 km (19 mi) southeast of Bacolod City, the capital and most populous city of Negros Occidental.
It is one of the active volcanoes in the Philippines and part of the Pacific ring of fire.
