Alney-Chashakondzha (Russian: Алней-Чашаконджа) is a volcanic complex located in the northern part of Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. It consists of two stratovolcanoes: Alney (2598 m) and Chashakondzha (2526 m).[3] Alney is one of the few large stratovolcanoes in the Sredinny Range known to have been active throughout the Holocene, with more than 30 documented pyroclastic deposits.[3]
