summit elevation 2353 m

Taunshits Volcano is located in eastern Kamchatka. The volcano contains a large horseshoe-shaped crater with a dome and lava flow.

A catastrophic slope failure occurred 7700 years ago in the western side of the volcano. The landslide formed a horseshoe-shaped crater 1.5 km in diameter and a debris avalanche with travel distance of about 19 km and a volume of 3 cubic km.

Previous eruptions have produced pumice fallout and pyroclastic flows.
