Details for: Paka
Trachytic pumice cones drape the upper NE flanks of Paka volcano in this aerial view from the NW. The dark-colored trachytic lava flow with well-defined flow ridges at the lower right traveled down the north flank of the volcano through a breach in the caldera wall. The 1.5-km-wide summit caldera is visible at the upper right, and a large crater to the SE appears to its left. Areas of brown vegetation are geothermally active.
