Bir Borhut volcano is an active, but almost unknown volcano in eastern Yemen near the Gulf of Aden. Old documents tell of volcanic activity in the 10th century, and it was reported to have still been "smoking" in 1813.
Geologic maps and satellite images of the Arabian Peninsula show young, probably basaltic lava flows in an area south and west of Wadi al Masilah river valley.
