Background

The complex contains prominent andesitic-dacitic lava flows extending 5 km north from the active summit crater of Volcán Olca as well as lava flows to the north and west originating from vents farther to the west. Volcán Paruma has erupted fresh-looking lava flows of unknown but likely young age, one of which extends 7 km to the SE.
