Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Tengchong
Two of the many cinder cones of the Tengchong volcanic district rise above cultivated lands in southern China near the border of Myanmar (Burma). The Tengchong volcanic field was active during five periods ranging from the early Pliocene to the Holocene. The youngest volcanism in the 600 sq km volcanic field occurred in two stages during the early and late Holocene. An explosive eruption took place at the northern cone of Dayingshan in 1609. The Tengchong district is the site of active geothermal fields. Photo by Liu Xiang, 1995 (Changchun University).
