Trip Planner: South America / Chile / Arica and Parinacota Region / Putre / Nature / Parinacota Volcano
Parinacota, Parina Quta or Parinaquta is a dormant stratovolcano on the border of Chile and Bolivia. Together with Pomerape it forms the Nevados de Payachata volcanic chain. Part of the Central Volcanic Zone of the Andes, its summit reaches an elevation of above sea level. The symmetrical cone is capped off by a summit crater with widths of or. Farther down on the southern slopes lie three parasitic centres known as the Ajata cones. These cones have generated lava flows. The volcano overlies a platform formed by lava domes and andesitic lava flows.The volcano started growing during the Pleistocene and formed a large cone. At some point between the Pleistocene and the Holocene, the western flank of the volcano collapsed, generating a giant landslide that spread west and formed a large, hummocky landslide deposit. The avalanche crossed and dammed a previously existing drainage, impounding or enlarging Lake Chungará; numerous other lakes now forming the headwaters of the Rio Lauca sprung up within the deposit. Volcanic activity rebuilt the cone after the collapse, cancelling out the collapse scar.With our custom trip planner, Putre attractions like Parinacota Volcano can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
