Details for: Tutupaca
The snow-capped Tutupaca massif (center) consists of two dissected volcanic edifices, of which the southern appears more youthful. Collapse of the northern edifice produced a debris avalanche that traveled 7 km to the NE, forming the speckled area above and to the right of the summit massif. The canyon of the Río Tacalaya lies west (left) of the volcano. A sulfur mine is located on the SE flank of the massif and is accessible from the N-S-trending road west of the volcano. Laguna Huaitire is visible at the top left-center. NASA Landsat7 image (worldwind.arc.nasa.gov)
