Mt Yelia volcano was first recognized as a volcano in 1963, although it has long been a familiar landmark for pilots flying between Port Moresby and Goroka.
The last significant eruption of Yelia volcano was about 18,000 years ago, and it is unknown whether it has erupted since then. There is weak solfataric activity in the summit crater and there are unverified reports from local inhabitants of an eruption during the early 1940's.
