Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-12311

The Kunlun Volcanic Group in NW Tibet contains at least 70 cones. The cone just above the center of this image is the Ashi cone, which erupted lava across 33 km2 in 1951. Other cones are visible in the Ashikule Basin, the relatively flat area across this image. Satellite image courtesy of Planet Labs, 2019.
