The Great Volcano that presents to us, accompanying the Rukapillan. The Quetrupillán, with a height of 2,380 meters, located in the center of the line that joins the Villarrica Volcano with the Lanín Volcano to the side of Argentine. It is believed that thousands of years ago, the volcano once had a huge explosion where during the eruption it had blew away its summit and leaving it in the shape we currently see; with a cross section that clearly differentiates it from its more pyramidal companions of East and West. Depending on the season, we can observe a blue lagoon that sits on top of the summit, as well as experiencing great views of volcanoes in the surroundings and forests of araucarias and lengas. A peaceful mountain ascent that will not face big crowds and an excellent mountain experience with unique views.
