Elbrus volcano is a large stratovolcano in the western Caucasus of SW Russia. It is the highest mountain of Europe (although some argue that it belongs already to Asia) and the highest volcano of the northern hemisphere.
Elbrus has not erupted for about 2000 years, but is considered an active volcano. There is weak solfataric activity near the summit and hot springs are present on the volcano's flanks.

Introduction:

Elbrus volcano has 2 summits: the 5595-m-high eastern summit has a 250-m-wide, well-preserved crater and is separated by a low saddle from the 5633-m-high western summit.
The surface of the 18 km diameter volcano cover 260 sq km. The longest mapped lava flows have traveled 24 km down the NNE flank. The most recent lava flows were erupted about 2000 years ago (tephronchronology dating).
Elbrus is a prominent destination for climbers.
