The Lower Chindwin volcano is a field of 7 or 8 explosion craters along the lower Chindwin River in central Myanmar.
Most cones and lava flows are older than 10,000 years, but a very young-looking basalt flow forms a plateau north of Thayet-Pingan.

Background:

The volcano belongs to the Burma volcanic arc west of the Sagaing-Namyin Fault. The field contains various lava compositions from rhyolitic, dacitic, andesitic to olivine basaltic rocks.
Cones and craters include Wazin Taung (366 m), Natyin Taung (237 m), Minma (200 m), Letpadaung Taung (322 m), Okpo Hill (272 m), Ywatha (122 m), lake-filled Taungbyauk crater (198 m), lake-filled Twindaung crater (231 m), lake-filled Songyuang crater.
