The Chiltepe Peninsula is seen across Lake Managua from the south on the outskirts of the city of Managua.  The broad peninsula extends into the lake about 6 km north of the city and lies at the northern end of a chain of pyroclastic cones and craters that extends into the city.  The small conical peak on the far right horizon is Volcán Chiltepe. Photo by Lee Siebert, 1998 (Smithsonian Institution).
