Symmetrical Volcán Aguas Calientes, also known as Simba, is a twin volcano of Láscar. It is seen here from the south as a backdrop to Laguna Lejía, renowned for its flamingos, with the slopes of Láscar at the extreme left. Aguas Calientes is at the eastern end of a short E-W volcanic chain that includes the historically active Láscar volcano on the west. A shallow lake occupies the well-preserved summit crater of Aguas Calientes. The thick lava flows at the summit are considered to be of Holocene age.
