"In Sagaing region, there is Twin Taung Hill which is an extinct volcano whose crater now forms a beautiful lake. The surrounding area has lush vegetation, and there are lovely views of the area from the rim of this crater lake. The lakes Algae is used in the production of vitamin E so I've been told hence the work signs at the Burmese production plant. Lithology of Twin Taung Monywa is 30 m thick columnar shoshonitic basalt flow beneath hydromagmatic breccias of Twin Taung maar (MY 97- 45)."
