Volcán Apagado (also known as Hualiaque) is a young cinder cone 50 km SE of Puerto Montt town. It is located in the center of the peninsula between the Gulf of Ancud and the Reloncaví estuary, west of Hornopirén volcano and SW of Yate volcano in southern Chile.
The summit contains a well preserved unvegetated crater 360 x 400 m in diameter and there is a small lava flow from a second cone nearby. The age of the cones is unknown, but judging from the young morphology, it could be Holocene.
