Here is an image of a stamp depicting Mount Nyiragongo, an active stratovolcano with an elevation of 3,470 m (11,380 ft) located inside Virunga National Park, printed by lithography (Harrison and Sons, Ltd.), and issued by Zaire (now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo) in 1990 as one of a set of four stamps promoting tourism, Scott No. 1256, plus a photo of the volcano.

This Bolivian stamp of 2006 commemorates the 400th anniversary of the founding of Oruro, an Andean town which has seen its "ups and downs" due to its focus on mining. Shown is the nearby Sajama National Park which includes the mountain Nevado Sajama. This is the highest peak in Bolivia at 6542 meters, or 21,463 feet. It is, however, only the 13th highest mountain of the Andes range.

From Wikipedia, "Nevado Sajama is an extinct volcano...it is a composite volcano consisting of a stratovolcano on top of several lava domes."

Here is Japan's July 19, 1988 stamp to commemorate the "Kagoshima International Conference on Volcanoes." The stamp depicts Sakurajima volcano. It is Scott #1795.

From Wikipedia, "Sakurajima is an active composite volcano, formerly an island and now a peninsula in Kagoshima Prefecture in Kyushu, Japan. The lava flows of the 1914 eruption connected it with the Osumi Peninsula. It is the most active volcano in Japan."
