TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Tutupaca volcano in southern Perú consists of 2 main volcanic edifices. It has been active in the past 10,000 years, producing lava flows from vents on the saddle between the northern and southern parts.
Historical eruptions are uncertain and the ones listed for the past centuries may have been from Yucamane volcano instead.
Solfataric activity occurs at the volcano.

Background:

Tutupaca volcano consists of 2 dissected volcanic edifices, of which the southern seems to be younger. Collapse of the northern edifice produced a debris avalanche that traveled 7 km to the north.
