The Licancabur Volcano

Licancabur – As seen from San Pedro de Atacama

This is the Licancabur volcano, visible from all over the town of San Pedro de Atacama. The volcano’s last eruption date is unknown however there are some interesting stories behind the history of this mountain. Part of the volcano lies in Bolivia and the summit lies in Chile. There is a crater lake at the top of the volcano and it is one of the highest lakes in the world!

Licancabur means Mountain of the People. I wonder why they call it that..
