Details for: Chichinautzin
A wide-angle view of the Chichinautzin volcanic field from the flanks of Popocatépetl volcano shows some of the abundant pyroclastic cones and low shield volcanoes that form the mostly monogenetic field. The massive Chichinautzin volcanic field covers more than 1000 sq km and stretches 90 km in an E-W direction from the eastern base of Nevado de Toluca volcano (the light-colored peak on the left-center horizon) to the western flanks of Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes.
