Tunkin (also known as Tunka) volcano is a volcanic field immediately west of the SW tip of Lake Baikal. It contains 5 groups of basaltic cinder cones, most prominently the Khobok cinder cones near the village of Tunka.
The youngest cones occur in the SE part of the field in the Khamar-Dayan range. It is possible that the last activity here was less than 10,000 years ago.
