The Holocene basaltic Visokiy stratovolcano is located between Asacha and Mutnovsky volcanoes. Golyi shield volcano, also of Holocene age, lies immediately to the WSW (Masurenkov, 1980; Kozhemyaka et al., 1984). Cinder cones related to regional basaltic volcanism surround 1234-m-high Visokiy volcano.
The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Visokiy. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Visokiy page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).
This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.

|The small basaltic Visokiy stratovolcano (left center) is surrounded by young lava flows produced by regional basaltic volcanism. The 1234-m-high Visokiy is seen here from the SW with snow-capped Gorely volcano on the distant skyline above and to its right and sharp-topped Mutnovsky volcano on the right-center horizon. In contrast to the large active stratovolcanoes of Gorely and Mutnovsky, no historical eruptions are known from Visokiy volcano.

The following references have all been used during the compilation of data for this volcano, it is not a comprehensive bibliography. Discussion of another volcano or eruption (sometimes far from the one that is the subject of the manuscript) may produce a citation that is not at all apparent from the title.
