Background:

A large area of Recent-to-prehistorical basaltic cinder cones and lava flows lies immediately east and south of Lake Zway (also spelled Zwai, Zeway, and Ziway) and forms islands along the east shore of the lake. About 80 vents were formed along the East Zway segment of the Wonji Fault Belt. The youngest lava flows at East Zway are unaffected by the latest tectonic faulting along the Ethiopian Rift.
