Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Kunlun Volcanic Group
The Kunlun volcano group in NW Tibet contains 70 well-preserved pyroclastic cones, many of which are located near Ashi (left-center) and Wuluke (bottom-center) lakes. The northern cone (top right-center) is the largest in the volcanic field and has many satellitic craters on its SE side. China's most recent volcanic eruption was observed by a road-building crew on May 27, 1951, at Ashi Shan, the cone located between the two lakes in this NASA Landsat image (with north to the top).
