TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Sollipulli volcano in central Chile, 60 km NE of Villarrica, is a dormant stratovolcano with a 4 km wide, glaciated summit caldera. It has explosion craters and cinder cones on the outer flanks of the caldera, and a series of lava domes are at the eastern and southern caldera rims.
The volcano had a large plinian eruption about 2900 years ago from the Alpehué crater cutting the SW rim.
Although it is less prominent in size than its larger neighbors Llaima and Villarrica, it is a potentially dangerous volcano because it tends to have large explosive eruptions.
