Ollague is a massive andesite stratovolcano in the Andes on the border between Bolivia and Chile. It is located southeast of the village that shares its name.

On the lower west flank of Ollague, debris avalanche hummocks surround La Porunita scoria cone and separate Salar de Ollague from Salar de Carcote.

The volcano displays fumarolic activity, particularly to the south of its summit area.

On the northwest side of the mountain a disused switchback road, whose highest point reaches over 5,650m leads to sulfur mines on the upper portion of Ollague. It is one of the highest (if not the highest) roads in the world. It has been descended by mountain bike .
