Taftan volcano is a strongly eroded stratovolcano in SE Iran. The andesitic volcano has 2 summits (Narkuh and Matherkuh). Very active sulfur fumaroles are found at the summit of the higher SE cone.
Reports of activity in 1902 and 1993 are uncertain.

Introduction:

Taftan volcano was constructed along a volcanic zone in Beluchistan, SE Iran, that extends into northern Pakistan. There are fresh-looking lava flows that were erupted from the SE cone. The deeply eroded NW cone is extinct and of Pleistocene age.
According to Iranian maps, the elevation of the volcanically active SE summit shown is 3,940 m, and the older dissected NW summit is 3,840 m.
Several necks, remnants of older cinder cones, are located in the plain W from Taftan, as well as a second (probably extinct) stratovolcano, Buzman (around 3,500 m summit elevation), which is largely unknown.

1993 possible eruption
A lava flow was reported at Taftan in 1993, but it is generally agreed that the report was a mistaken observation of a molten sulfur flow.
The report came from the Islamic Republic News Agency and stated that a lava flow traveled about 60 m downslope on 25 April. No additional information could be obtained.

1902 possible activity
In January 1902, Taftan volcano was reported to be smoking heavily for several days, with occasional strong night-time glow.
