Lovers of volcanoes will be satisfied. Bolivia has a number of ascents a bit technical but physically demanding.
Volcanoes give mostly a headache. They have something special.
North of the Cordillera Real, lies the Cordillera Apolobamba, northeast of Lake Titicaca, it is part of the Eastern Cordillera that extends along a northwest / southeast axis and the Cordillera further south.
The "Cordillera de Lípez" from the extreme south of Bolivia to the chilean border hosts volcanoes of lower altitude. The head of their cones isn't covered by glaciers and their sides represent real palettes of varied colours.
The massive Chaupi Orco (Quechua: Chwapi Urqu, "Central Mountain") is situated on the border of Peru and Bolivia, in the Cordillera Apolobamba.
The Uturuncu volcano is located further east than its volcanic neighbors which are the Iruputuncu, the Alto Toroni and Ollagüe volcanoes .
The Iruputuncu (5.163 m) is not well known, yet it is also the most surprising of the volcanoes of the Lipez region. It is an active volcano like his friend the Ollagüe volcano (5870 m) further south.
The Alto Toroni or Sillajhuay volcano (6002 m) is sandwiched between the Salar de Uyuni and the Salar de Coipasa, snowy all the year, it gives a "high mountain" atmosphere.
