Cotopaxi is considered the world's highest active volcano at 5897m.
It is a stratovolcano (very similar in form to Mt. Fuji or Mt Sashta) with an almost perfectly symmetrical cone, rising from a highland plain of 3800m and covered by a mighty glacier from a height of 5000m on. The side of the cone has deep valleys scoured by lahars. The summit crater is 600m x 800m in diameter and several hundred meters deep

Volcanoes of India

1) Deccan Traps - The Deccan Traps is located in central west India and dates from 66 million years ago. The lava flows are some of the largest on earth covering 900 km and meet the coast at the Arabian Sea. Deccan volcanism coincided with the decline of the dinosaurs raising the possibility that the Indian volcanoes were involved with their decline.

2) Narcondum Volcano , Andaman Islands - summit elevation 710 m
