Jingbo volcano (also known as Cingpo, Ching-pe, Chingpohu, or Jingbohu) is a young volcanic field in the Jingbo (or Jingpo) Lake area in NE China about 80 km SW of Mudanjiang city. The area is also known as the "Crater Forest" and "Frog Pool" areas.
The volcanic field contains cones and lava flows on top of plateaus above the Mudan River (Mudanjiang). The scenic Jingbohu lake ("Mirror Lake"), a major tourist attraction in the region, formed when lava flows blocked the Mudan River.

Background:

Most vents are located on the NE-striking Dunhua-Mishan fault. One alkali basaltic lava flow traveled 100 km down a canyon NW of the lake. The volcanism of the field is related to an intraplate hot spot, generating melts from the upper mantle. Mantle xenoliths are common in Jingbo volcanic rocks. A period of major activity occurred about 5500-5200 years ago and produced extensive lava flows that covered an area of about 500 sq km.
