Mongolia has 3 Holocene volcanoes. Note that as a scientific organization we provide these listings for informational purposes only, with no international legal or policy implications. Volcanoes will be included on this list if they are within the boundaries of a country, on a shared boundary or area, in a remote territory, or within a maritime Exclusive Economic Zone. Bolded volcanoes have erupted within the past 20 years. Suggestions and data updates are always welcome ().

There are 3 photos available for volcanoes in Mongolia.The sparsely vegetated lava flow filling this valley originated from Horgo scoria cone (center). The cone is part of the Taryatu-Chulutu volcanic field in north-central Mongolia about 250 km W of Ulaanbaatar. The volcanic field contains six Holocene scoria cones along the Sumein and Gichgeniyn river valleys at the western end of the volcanic field.

The volcanic field covers a broad area along the Khanuy River and in other drainages to the east. The cones range from about 30 to 190 m in height and are considered to be of late-Pleistocene to Holocene age.

The Dariganga Volcanic Field is SE Mongolia near the border with China and is shown in this 28 September 2019 Sentinel-2 satellite image (N is at the top). The field contains over 200 scoria cones and resulting lava flows across around 14,000 km2. This image is approximately 190 km across.
