The Holocene scoria cones of Barkhatnaya Sopka are located on a plateau 13 km N of Vilyuchik volcano on an uplifted eroded Miocene-Pliocene block. In this view looking NE, the Mt. Barkhatnaya cone which formed 3,000-4,000 years ago is to the left, and the reddish hill to the right is an early Holocene scoria cone. The white hill in the center is a part of an eroded rhyolitic body.
