View from the South rim (5550m )
into the youngest crater, which shows a
strong fumarole activity. The dense and aggressive gases avoided a view into
the crater base but we guess that it must get down more than 300m.
afternoon image (5 pm), shows the Lascar with the seasonal daily summit
thunder storm which was covering the top with a big cloud.
Volcan Lascar ( over 'Sattel',
alt 5350m o.s.l), This was a phenomenal view to the North. In the
background on the very left the Volcan Licancabur 5916 m (distance
60 km). Here more than 30 volcanos like the Licancabur are standing majestetic
over the Atacama dessert.
A great neighbour, Volcan
Volcan Aguas Caliente (5813m o.s.l) from the
east rim (5500mo.s.l). The chaotic weather conditions made it nearly impossible to
climb a summit more than 5900m.
Without a outdoor car you have no chance to get to
the base of the volcano
