Details for: Chingo
A cloudcap brushes the summit of Volcán Chingo, a prominent landmark on the Guatemala/El Salvador border. The symmetrical 1775-m-high stratovolcano is seen here from the SE on the Salvadoran side of the border. The light-brown hill below the volcano at right-center is Cerro Laguneta. Other flank vents are located on the NE side of the volcano, and a chain of N-S-trending vents extends long distances on both sides of the summit. Several youthful lava flows are found west and north of Volcán Chingo. Photo by Giuseppina Kysar, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
