Thanks to nicolas morales for adding this peak.

The Tungurahua volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in Ecuador. It had been largely at rest for most of the 20th Century, but resumed a period of activity in 1999. The most significant eruptions in recent times were violent eruptions in July and August of 2006, the latter of which resulted in 7 deaths.
