Photo Gallery


Cerro El Chino, also known as La Hedionda, is seen here from the east, just south of the town of Aguilares. This pyroclastic cone of Pleistocene age is part of the Cerro Cinotepeque volcanic field, a large group of small Pleistocene-to-Holocene stratovolcanoes and pyroclastic cones constructed along NW-SE-trending faults on either side of the Río Lempa west of Guazapa volcano. The Holocene cone of Cerro Cinotepeque lies about 6 km NW of Cerro El Chino.
