Peru's volcanoes belong to the subduction zone of the eastern Pacific's Nazca Plate beneath South America all along the west coast of Peru. However, only in southern Peru there are active volcanoes. The rest of the country's cordillera belongs to a volcanically inactive gap, where the subduction is at such a shallow angle that magma is not generated by the process.
