Photo Gallery

The late-Pleistocene to Holocene Khodutka stratovolcano, seen here from the NE, was constructed to the SE of Priemysh, an older Pleistocene andesitic stratovolcano. The higher and younger Khodutka volcano is composed of more silicic, andesitic-to-dacitic rocks. Minor flank vents occur on the SW and north sides. The latest eruption produced a lava flow from the 2090-m-high summit crater of Khodutka about 2000-2500 years ago.

Khodutka stratovolcano (left), seen here from the north, was formed from the late-Pleistocene to early Holocene SE of an older stratovolcano, Priemysh, which forms the lower peak at the right. At least 10 explosion craters, small lava cones, and lava domes are located along the flanks of the Khodutka complex. The last dated eruption took place from the summit vent of Khodutka about 2000-2500 years ago. The Khodutka Springs geothermal field occupies an explosion crater on the NW flank of Priemysh volcano.
