Tolhuaca (volcano)


Tolhuaca Volcano is a stratovolcano located in the northern part of the Araucania Region of Chile. The volcano has been shaped by glacial erosion, which contrasts with the relatively smooth slopes of its neighbor Lonquimay, due to the younger age of this latter volcano.

The volcano dominates the landscape of Tolhuaca National Park, but is not located within its borders. Its slopes are covered with forests of araucarias and other tree species. Small lakes or lagunas complete the gorgeous scenery.
