Kikhpinych is located E of the Uzon caldera and has three edifices, the youngest of which are the central, Zapadny, and Savich (left center) cones. Numerous young lava flows have been emplaced on the flanks of the Savich cone, seen here from the NE. Savich erupted 400 years ago, forming the Krab lava dome formed on its eastern flank.
