Photo Gallery

The small basaltic shield volcano Nylgimelkin (left) is capped by a pyroclastic cone. Nylgimelkin (also known as Atlasov) is dwarfed by its neighbor, the glacier-clad Pleistocene Khuvkhoitun volcano, whose slopes are visible in the background. Khuvkhoitun is the highest Quaternary volcano of the northern Sredinny Range. Lava flows from Nylgimelkin were erupted along a fissure on the NW slopes of Khuvkhoitun about 5500 years ago.
