Photo Gallery

Glacier-covered Sara Sara volcano lies right of the center of this NASA composite Landsat image (with north to the top). Sara Sara, the westernmost young volcano in Perú, lies between Laguna Parinacocha (left) and the Río Ocona valley (right). The 5522-m-high andesitic stratovolcano was the source of youthful-looking lava flows that traveled about 15 km eastward into the Río Ocona valley.
