The Nevados Firura volcanic complex consists of a 10-12 km long, NE-SW-trending cluster of small stratovolcanoes. The highest peak is 5500-m-high Nevado Firura itself, which lies to the NE of Cerro Soncco Orcco and Cerro Jahsaya. Little is known about this andesitic volcanic complex, but morphologically youthful lava flows extend into vegetated and settled areas. The age of Nevados Firura was considered to be Holocene (de Silva and Francis, 1990), but later work showed that the young-looking lava flows on the flank of the volcano were dated at about several hundred thousand years (Worner 2006, pers. comm.).
