Yuzhny Cherpuk cinder cone (left-center horizon) and its andesitic lava flow are located 11 km SSW from Ichinsky volcano. The fresh-looking lava flow was erupted about 6500 years ago and traveled 18 km. Severny Cherpuk (South Cherpuk) and Yuzhny Cherpuk (North Cherpuk) are two cinder cones SW of Ichinsky volcano that comprise the largest monogenetic volcanoes of the Sredinny Range. Severny Cherpuk, 21 km SW of Ichinsky, is a double cone that was constructed along the crest of the Sredinny Range.
