One of the largest volcanoes of the central Ethiopian Rift, Ch'Ilalo lies east of the main rift and contains a 6-km-wide summit caldera. Akali-trachytic lava flows occupy the caldera floor and a small basaltic flow is found on the NE rim (Di Paola 1972). A Potassium-Argon date of 1.76 million years ago has been obtained (WoldeGabriel 1987, pers. comm.).
