The Lascar Volcano is located in the central volcanic zone of the Andes and is an active volcano (with a long history of seismic and eruptive activity). It is one of the highest and driest volcanic areas, so there is not too much flora and fauna. Although it is considered for tourism, since 2012 the National Geology and Mining Service of Chile decreed Yellow Alert, so caution is always recommended.Show more
