Laguna Bianca is a group of cinder cones and lava flows SW of the town of Zapala. A perfectly shaped and youthful-looking cinder cone on the northern shore of Laguna Blanca is the most prominent feature.
Laguna Blanca National Park is famous for its aquatic bird fauna, including black-necked swans and flamingos.

Background:

The volcanic field lies at the southern end of the Loncopue graben. The basaltic to trachyandesitic cinder cones and small shield volcanoes are considered to be less than 10,000 years old, although no radiometric ages are available.
