Details for: Gamchen
The Gamchen volcanic massif, consisting of one Holocene and three late-Pleistocene cones, is seen from the SE. The reddish Holocene cone in the foreground, capped by a 500-m-wide, 200-m-deep crater, is named Barany (or Baranii, meaning "Sheep's"). Stratigraphic evidence indicates that it grew in several spurts of activity 3600-3000 years ago. Yuzhny Gamchen (center) forms the high point of the Gamchen massif. Kizimen volcano is seen on the distant horizon left of Gamchen's summit.
