One of northern Chile's most active volcanoes, Volcán Guallatiri (right) is a symmetrical ice-clad stratovolcano at the SW end of the Nevados de Quimsachata volcano group.  This view from the west includes three other peaks of the Nevados de Quimsachata group at the extreme left, Pleistocene Volcán Humarata and Pleistocene-to-Holocene Volcán Acotango and Capurata volcano (center).  Minor explosive eruptions have occurred since the beginning of the 19th century from 6071-m-high Guallatiri volcano. Photo by Hugo Moreno (University of Chile).
