Damavand has not erupted in historical times, though occasional steam and sulfur gases exude from the top. The definition of an active volcano is a volcano that is erupting. Also, a volcano that is not presently erupting, but that has erupted within historical time and is considered likely to do so in the future is an active volcano. Damavand is not the highest active volcano in Asia because it is not active.

Klyuchevskaja sopka is the highest active volcano in eastern Asia. Damavand (5671 m) is the highest active volcano in the whole Asia.

It just depends on you definition of active or inactive volcano. By the way, steam and sulfur gases do not exude ocassionally, but constantly. Not only from the top, but also about at the altitude around 5300 m. You can try it :-))) Moreover, check this http://www.skimountaineer.com/ROF/ROF.php?name=Damavand

The mountain's name is spelled incorrectly in Russian.



It should be: Êëþ÷åâñêàÿ Ñîïêà -- The second "a" in the first word is missing.

Propane / butane canisters and other outdoor supplies (but not white gas) are available at:
Polaris, 9 Lukashevskogo St., phone: +7 (415)-226-81-00

Where to stay in Klyuchi:
Volcanologists’ guesthouse
Location: UTM: 57V 0614.836, 6242.936 km.

The above map server link is dead, but this one has thousands of detailed Soviet topo maps in reasonable resolution from 1:50,000 to 1:1,000,000 scale:

Klyuchi and Klyuchevskaya:

http://maps.vlasenko.net/smtm200/o-57-35.jpg

Warning: The datum is Pulkovo 1942. This datum was not in my Garmin Etrex 20. At Klyuchi, the UTM/UPS East-West coordinates are precise enough, but the North-South ones are 2.6km of difference compared to the UTM coordinates on the map grid. This difference does not change on the entire O-57-142 map.

For example: at the Klyuchi volcanologists' guesthouse, the GPS reads: 57V 0614.836, 6242.936 km.
On the map, this building is at: 27614.8, 6245.5 km.
E / W difference:<100m
N / S difference: 2.6km

1) Field technique: (used in Kamchatka):
Physically go to a location that can be identified on the map.
Compare the UTM WGS 84 psn on GPS receiver with UTM coordinates on the map.
Calculate correction distances E / W and N / S.

2) Google Earth technique:
Pick a point on Google Earth that can be identified on the map.
Compare the UTM psn on Google Earth with UTM coordinates on the map.
Calculate correction distances E / W and N / S.

Once you have the correction distances, add or subtract them to your GPS UTM coordinates to find your position on the map.
On the Klyuchevskaya map, add 2.6 km to the N / S coordinates only.
