Hornopiren (volcano)

Hornopiren Volcano is a stratovolcano located in the Andes, in Los Lagos Region of Chile, south of Yate Volcano. Hornopiren lies on the major regional Liquine-Ofqui Fault. The volcano was said to be in eruption in 1835, although no details are known. The name of the volcano derives from the Spanish word for oven, horno and the native Mapudungun word for snow piren, thus Hornopiren means snow oven.
