Kharchinsky is a Pleistocene volcano immediately north of Zarechny volcano (Luchitsky, 1974) in the lowlands north of the Kamchatka River. The magnesian basaltic volcano rises 1400 m above the surrounding plains. It was constructed during the late Pleistocene and predates glacial moraines dated at 23,000-24,000 years ago. Faulting and edifice failures have deeply affected the edifice, and debris-avalanche fans are found at its base.
