Stratovolcanos are the most common types of volcanoes. A stratovolcano is conical-shaped, built up by many layers or strata of hardened erupted volcanic materials, including ash, lava, pumice and tephra. Due to the layer-based formation, a stratovolcano is also known as a compositve volcano. Some of the prominent stratovolcanos in the world include Ojos Del Salado of Chile, the highest volcano in the world, and iconic mountains, such as Mount Kilimanjaro of Tanzania and Mount Fuji of Japan.
