Dacht-i-Navar volcano is a group of 15 lava domes in west-central Afghanistan SW of Kabul.
Their age is unknown, but it is speculated that they have erupted less than 10,000 years ago and should be considered potentially active.
The lava domes are trachyandesitic in composition and located along the southern margin of Dacht-i-Navar.
Intraplate volcanism: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.
