Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Taftan
Snow-capped Taftan volcano towers above surrounding arid terrain in eastern Iran. The strongly eroded stratovolcano has two prominent summits. The volcano was constructed along a volcanic zone in Beluchistan, SE Iran, that extends into northern Pakistan. The higher, 4050 m SE summit cone is well preserved and has been the source of very fresh-looking lava flows. Highly active, sulfur-encrusted fumaroles occur at the summit of the SE cone.
