Osorno Volcano, Chile

Osorno Volcano is a 2,652-metre tall conical stratovolcano in Los Lagos Region of Chile. Osorno is known worldwide as a symbol of the local landscape, and is noted for its similar appearance to Mount Fuji. It's 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.
Thank you very much Hernan!
