Volcán Yate is an upper Pleistocene, glacially dissected stratovolcano with Holocene parasitic vents. Little is known of the eruptive history of this isolated volcano, which is located SW of the mouth of the Puelo River on the Relancaví strait, NNE of neighboring Hornopirén volcano.

The small rounded brownish volcano at the center of this NASA International Space Station image (with north to the left) is Hornopirén. It is located SSW of Yate volcano, the glacier-capped peak at the upper left. The 1572-m-high mostly forested volcano lies along a graben defined by the major regional Liquiñe-Ofqui fault zone, north of the Hornopirén strait (lower right) and immediately south of Lago Cabrera. Prominent lava flows descend beyond the SW base of the volcano nearly to the coast.
