Cerro Tipas (also known as Cerro Walter Penk) volcano is a massive volcanic complex in NW Argentina located immediately SSW of its better known neighbor, 6887-m-high Nevados Ojos del Salado. Tipas is the third highest active volcano in the world. It is poorly known because of its isolated location.
The Tipas volcanic complex contains craters, cones, lava domes and lava flows covering an area of 25 sq km. It has a youthful morphology and it is thought that its latest eruptions were less than 10,000 years ago.
