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.
Igneous or magmatic rocks: The most primitive rock type forms when magma (molten rock) solidifies - either inside the earth (plutonic rocks) or during volcanic eruptions (volcanic rocks). A short overview.
Ethiopia and the Danakil: Ethiopia is a very diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to our numerous expeditions to Erta Ale and Dallol and beyond, we have an extensive collection of images showing the volcano's lava lake, the desert, the colorful hot springs of Dallol, the vast salt lakes, camel caravans and more.
