Ichinsky is the highest peak in Kamchatka's Sredinny Range, which extends along the western side of the peninsula. The summit cone of the massive stratovolcano, seen here from the south, was constructed within a 3 x 5 km-wide glacier-covered caldera. A dozen late-Pleistocene to Holocene dacitic and rhyodacitic lava domes circle the peak below the caldera rim, at elevations of 1,800-3,000 m. Fumarolic activity occurs within the caldera and on the lower N flank.
