Lower Chindwin
"The Lower Chindwin area contains seven or eight late-Pliocene and Pleistocene explosion craters. Scattered outcrops of basaltic lava flows are found in this area, including an undated, but very recent basalt that forms a plateau north of Thayet-Pingan. A lake-filled crater located at Songyuang is surrounded by olivine basaltic lava flows and pyroclastic material. This region along the lower Chindwin River also contains rhyolitic, dacitic, and andesitic rocks."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
