The Manda Gargori rift, located north of the town of Aisa Aita NE of Borawli volcano and SE of Kurub volcano, is the youngest rift segment in the Afar depression and is only one third the width of the adjacent Manda Hararo-Goba'ad rift system to the west. Two older lava flows from the Manda Gargori rift have Pleistocene potassium-argon dates. Youthful-looking lava flows, some of which may have been subaqueous, have been emitted from NNW-trending fissures. A hyaloclastite tuff ring is also present, and a rhyolitic lava dome surrounded by two basaltic lava flows is located north of Uddummi lake. No historical activity has been reported at the dominantly basaltic Manda Gargori rift, but human footprints have been observed in a fresh ashfall deposit, and the eruptive activity is considered to be of historical age.

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Manda Gargori. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Manda Gargori page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

The Global Volcanism Program has no synonyms or subfeatures listed for Manda Gargori.

The Global Volcanism Program has no photographs available for Manda Gargori.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
