The northern wall of Coatepeque caldera rises about 250 m above the surface of Lago de Coatepeque, whose shores are lined with residences and small hotels.  The conical peak on the left horizon is Volcán Chingo, which straddles the El Salvador/Guatemala border.  The flat-topped peak on the far right horizon is Volcán Suchitán, one of the largest volcanoes in SE Guatemala. Photo by Lee Siebert, 2002 (Smithsonian Institution).
