Volcán Osorno (60)
|Chile contains a large number of volcanoes but they are not particularly active.|
This is due to the shallow subduction of the tectonic plates which cuts off magma supply to the surface.
Volcán Osorno is a 2,652 m (8,701 feet) tall conical volcano lying between the provinces of Osorno and Llanquihue, in Los Lagos Region of Chile. This is one of the most active volcanoes of the southern Chilean Andes. It stands on the southeastern shore of Lake Llanquihue, known worldwide as a symbol of the local landscape. The volcano also towers over Todos los Santos Lake.
This mountain has an extremely similar appearance to Mount Fuji.
Osorno is one of the most active volcanoes in southern Chile.
It has produced lava flows that have entered both Llanquihué and Todos los Santos lakes.
