There are many types of land forms, here they are:

Kapatagan or plain – a flat land with no elevation or depression.  A very good place to plant rice, corn and vegetables.

Bundok or mountain – an elevated land, with steep side but higher than hills (no clue up what the minimum height, for any mountain to be called a mountain)

Bulkan or volcano – a kind of mountain where molten rock lava may come out of it or volcanic ash coming from the depths of the earth.  There are two types of volcano active and dormant.
