Background:

The symmetrical Visoke volcano is the NE-most of a cluster of large stratovolcanoes at the southern end of the Virunga Range on the border of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. The 3711-m-high stratovolcano contains a 450-m-wide lake in its summit crater. A NE-SW-trending fissure zone has produced many cinder cones NE of the trachyandesitic volcano. An eruption in 1957 formed two small cones on the north flank, 11 km from the summit.
