BeschreibungThe 2 volcanoes are built above a 4 km wide basaltic caldera: The small 2415-m-high Choshuenco stratovolcano was built was constructed on the NW rim of the caldera, is late-glacial in age. A major plinian eruption produced the Neltume Pumice about 10,300 years ago.
The larger andesitic-to-dacitic, 2422-m-high El Mocho volcano is located in the caldera and has been historically active. Flank cones are located on the flanks of Mocho-Choshuenco, primarily on the NE and SW sides.
