Kronotsky volcano. View of the perfect cone of the Kronotsky (or Kronotskaya) volcano standing over Kronotsky lake in Russia's Kamchatka peninsula. This is an example of a stratovolcano, one composed of alternating layers of lava and rubble, which almost always exhibit a conical shape. Kronotsky stands at around 3528 metres high. The summit crater is completely filled with lava, and the peak of the volcano is made of ice.
