Photo Gallery


The Hainan Dao volcanic field (center) stretches across the northern part of Hainan Island. It covers about 3600 sq km of the northern part of the island (also known as Qiong Island), across the Qiongzhou strait from the Leizhou Peninsula (top-center). The Hainan Dao volcano field is of Pleistocene-Holocene age, but historical eruptions were reported in the Lingao and Chengmai areas.
