Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-07420

Conchagua volcano has a conical profile when seen from the NE near Punta el Chiriquín.  The volcano actually has a much more complex structure than seen here and has been extensively eroded.  It has two principal summits.  The eastern summit, Cerro de La Bandera, seen in this view, appears morphologically more youthful and is less dissected than Cerro del Ocote, which forms the 1225 m high point of the volcanic complex.
