Ipala is part of a cluster of closely spaced small stratovolcanoes and scoria cone fields in SE Guatemala. The summit has a 1-km-wide crater containing a lake. The eastern flank, seen here from the SW, contains a line of Holocene scoria cones and lava flows. Monte Rico is the scoria cone on the south flank (right).
