Pampa Luxsar (also spelled Pampa Luxar) is a volcanic field in SW Bolivia 23 km from the border with Chile. It comprises a 45 x 45 km area of lava flows at the SW margin of Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni east of the Andean volcanic front.

Background:

There are several generations of lava flows and cones and the youngest lava flows might be less than 10,000 years old. They surrounds the older eroded stratovolcanoes of Cerro Luxsar and Cerro Uquila.
