El Volcán is the oldest and most dissected of a group of pyroclastic cones north of Lake Yojoa.  El Volcán lies at the SE end of the cluster of cones near the lake.  The cone, now mantled by scoria from younger cones, fed a series of basaltic lava flows that underlie a flat valley to the SE (to the right of this photo).
