Volcano Tohuaca from Volcano Lonquimay

Info

Apparently the trail marked on the 1:50,000 map has been closed due to private mining activity stopping access. It may be possible to start from Laguna Blanca (access via private land - small fee payable) but allow 2 days and camp at the lake to make an early morning start.

Route: I haven't done this trail myself. From Laguna Blanca the trail aparently heads up the valley, following the right hand stream towards its source before making a rising traverse to the left to join up with the original trail and on to the summit.
