Imbabura volcano is located in the Interandean valley 60 km north of Quito, Ecuador.

Eruptions at Imbabura volcano consisted of pyroclastic flows that extended northeast of the cone. A dome collapse of Huarmi Imbabura about 8000 years ago generated an avalanche that caused a large seiche in San Pablo lake, located at the western base of this volcano.
