Putana Volcano

Putana (also known as Jorqencal or Machuca) is a stratovolcano on the border between Bolivia and Chile. It lies immediately NNE of Cerro Colorado, about north of the Sairecabur complex and south of the Cerros de Tocorpuri complex. Intense fumarolic activity occurs at its summit, and a solfatara (see fumarole) can be observed in the central crater.
