The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
Imbabura volcano in northern Ecuador is located above the scenic Laguna de San Pablo in the Interandean valley 60 km north of the capital Quito.
Eruptions at Imbabura volcano generated pyroclastic flows that extended northeast. A large dome collapse of Huarmi Imbabura about 8000 years ago generated a debris avalanche that caused a large seiche (tidal wave, tsunami) in San Pablo lake at the western base of Imbabura.
Historical activity consisted only in mudflows and rock slides, but the volcano is considered active.
