Background

A low saddle on the NE side separates Berutarube volcano from the Lvinaya Past caldera. The only known activity at Berutarube volcano within the past 10,000 years built a small cinder cone on the intersecting headwalls of U-shaped valleys and cirques in the eroded summit region. The hydrothermally altered summit cone fed 2 small lava flows.
