Mt. San Cristobal – also called Mt. Cristobal – is a nicely shaped conic volcano covered by dense rain forest. The mount is part of the Holocene volcanic complex of Mt. Banahaw but unlike Banahaw de Lucban, which lies on the slope of the huge Banahaw itself, Cristobal seems to be a different mount on it's own. Its youthful morphology suggests that it postdates Mt. Banahaw. The highest peak of Mt. San Cristobal is 1480 m high.

On the flanks of San Cristobal there are andesitic-todacitic lava domes.

Along the slopes of Cristobal, a wide flat area can be seen which was actually a test site of a proposed geothermal plant that didn't push through. Another controversial project that was proposed was the creation of a highway that will link Dolores to Nagcarlan passing between Mts. Cristobal and Banahaw. The project didn't materialized since residents and environmentalist opposed the idea.

For tourists from Europe or from the US the thing that there are monkeys in the mountain gives extra flavour.
