Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-11064

The elongated, glacier-covered massif near the center of this NASA International Space Station image (with north to the left) is Yanteles volcano in southern Chile.  The volcano is composed of five glacier-capped peaks along an 8-km-long NE-trending ridge.  Historical eruptions from this 2042-m-high, andesitic volcanic complex are uncertain.
