The volcano Nevado de Incahuasi or Incahuasi (meaning "house of the Inca" in Quechua) stands 21,778 ft (6638 m) above sea level, straddling the Argentine-Chilean border. It's found toward the southern end of a long chain of giant volcanoes (all above 6,000 m) that include El Fraile, El Muerto, Ojos del Salado, Cerro Solo and Tres Cruces. This impressive massif is composed of two stratovolcanoes that occupy a 2 mi (3.5 km) diameter caldera. Its eruptive history is uncertain, but it evidently hasn't erupted in the past several hundred years. Photo taken on November 19, 2018.
