Puntiagudo-Cordon Cenizos

Puntiagudo-Cordon Cenizos is a snow-capped volcanic chain located in the Andes, in Los Lagos Region of Chile, near Volcan Osorno. It lies between Rupanco Lake and Todos los Santos Lake. "Volcan Puntiagudo" (Spanish for "Sharp-pointed volcano") is a stratovolcano with a prominent 2,493 m high sharp-pointed summit that results from glacial dissection and gets its name from this feature.

Puntiagudo is partially contained within Vicente Perez Rosales National Park.
