Forested Volcán Relicura, rising to the NW from near the Liucura Bridge, is part of four groups of basaltic cinder cones lying east of Lago Villarrica and NE of Villarrica volcano.  The northernmost and southernmost groups, the Volcanes de Caburgua and Volcán Huelemolle, respectively, lie along the major regional Liquine-Ofqui fault zone.  Lava flows from the half dozen cinder cones of the Volcanes de Caburgua blocked drainages, forming elongated Lago Caburgua. Photo by Jim Luhr, 2004 (Smithsonian Institution).
