ABOUT OSORNO VOLCANO CHILE

ABOUT OSORNO VOLCANO CHILE

Osorno volcano is a 2,652-meter (8,701 ft) tall conical strato volcano lying between Osorno province and Llanquihue province, in Los Lagos Region of Chile. It stands on the south eastern shore of Llanquihue lake and it is known worldwide as a symbol of the local landscape. Osorno is one of the most active volcanoes of the southern Chilean Andes, with 11 historical eruptions recorded between 1575 and 1869. The upper slopes of the volcano are almost entirely covered in glaciers, despite its very modest altitude and latitude, sustained by the substantial snowfall in the very moist maritime climate of the region.
