Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11909

This dramatic photo looking south from Telapón volcano shows the rounded Papayo lava dome in the foreground, with snow-capped Iztaccíhuatl (left) and Popocatépetl (right) in the background.  These volcanoes, along with Telapón, and Tláloc stratovolcanoes, form a prominent N-S-trending chain east of Mexico City transverse to the trend of the Mexican Volcanic Belt.
