Photo Gallery


Scenic lake-filled Sanjiaolongwan volcano (whose name means "Triangular Dragon Peak") is a 1-km-wide early Pleistocene tuff ring of the Longgang volcanic field. This massive volcanic field covers a 1700 sq km area in Jilin Province of NE China, west of Changbaishan volcano. Basaltic lava flows cover a broad area dotted by more than 150 Quaternary cinder cones and 8 tuff rings. There is only one known Holocene cinder cone, Jinlongdingzi ("Gold Dragon Peak"), which erupted about 1600-1700 years ago.
