Details for: Putana
Volcán Putana, seen here from the west, shows vigorous fumarolic activity at its 5890-m-high summit. Snow forming a thin diagonal line below and to the right of the summit marks a road leading to a sulfur-mining operation at the summit of the volcano. Putana is also known as Jorgencal or Machuca and is part of a large, roughly N-S-trending volcanic complex that covers an area of 600 sq km along the Chile-Bolivia border. Postglacial dacitic lava domes and short, thick lava flows form the main edifice. Photo by Joël Boyer, 2006 (L.A.V.E.)
