Casiri, Nevados
"The Nevados Casiri complex, the southernmost Holocene volcano in PerĂº, lies near the Chilean border, about 25 km north of Tacora volcano. Nevados Casiri consists of four volcanic edifices, with the youngest cone on the SE side. This compound trachytic and trachyandesitic volcano reaches an elevation of 5650 m and is also known as Paugarani. Two fresh Holocene lava flows are located south of the youngest cone, which has a well-defined summit crater. An older lava dome is located to the west. Two sulfur mines have been opened on the NW and SE flanks."  -Smithsonian Volcano Archive
