Mount Malindig is considered a potentially active volcano, in part because of the solfataric springs of Malbog. Its unique location, at the heart of Southern Tagalog, creates a panorama that encompasses Mindoro, Verde Island, and Southern Luzon all the way to Bicol and Burias Island.

The Mountain is the largest on the Island of Marinduque and the most popular climb and hike on the island for mountaineers and alike, known for its unique environmental biodiversity. It is the home of different species of wild orchids and other endemic wildlife.

Due to its height above 1,000 meters above sea level, by law is has been identified as a protected area. The dormant volcano has three peaks, the Trek and climb to the peak is rated as easy to moderate. After passing the Radio Station base on the mountain, it has been known to be a mossy and closed canopy forest trek with regular foggy surroundings. It is also used by the Buenavista townfolks as a cattle grazing area.

The age of the most recent eruptions of Malindig volcano is not known, but hot springs are located at its western foot.
