"Huge Valcano "
0

A special place to photograph and live in northern Chile. However, it is a remote place despite its proximity due to the lack of services and suitable places to lodge. It is a great place to visit but not to stay.

Guallatiri

Guallatiri is a 6,071-metre-high volcano in Chile. It is located southwest of the Nevados de Quimsachata volcanic group. It is a stratovolcano with fumaroles around the summit, which may be either a lava dome or a pyroclastic cone. The lower flanks of the volcano are covered by lava flows and lava domes.

Guallatiri has been active in historical times with a number of eruptions, the last in 1960. Fumarolic and seismic activity is ongoing. The volcano is covered by an ice cap.
