The symmetrical, glacier-clad Osorno stratovolcano forms a renowned landmark between Todos Los Santos and Llanguihue lakes.  It is seen here from the north, with Calbuco volcano visible at the extreme right.  The 2652-m-high Osorno is one of the most active volcanoes of the southern Chilean Andes.  Flank scoria cones and fissure vents, primarily on the west and SW sides, have produced lava flows that reached Lago Llanguihue.  Historical eruptions have originated from both summit and flank vents.     Photo by Hugo Moreno (University of Chile).
