The stratovolcano Taunshitz is essentially lava with a base diameter of 12 km and has the form of a truncated cone of irregular shape. An explosive circus is located on its western slope, and a large extrusion is located on its southern slope. In the early Holocene, an eruption of directed blast type occurred, destroying the western part of the volcano's edifice. An extrusive dome with a crater 50-75 m in size and 30 m deep grew in the explosive circus; a blocky lava flow poured out of the dome.
