More About Petrohué Waterfalls and Osorno Volcano:

Petrohué Waterfalls:
The waterfall is supported by basaltic lava (andesite) stemming from the Osorno Volcano that sits in between Todos Los Santos and Llanquihue Lake and provides an interesting background for pictures. The average water flow of these falls is 270 m3 per second, but it can be much larger during the rainy season when the surface level of Lake Todos Los Santos rises by up to 3 meters. The water, decanted in the lake, is usually clear with a green hue; however, occasionally, when lahars descending from the volcano are active, water at the falls can be loaded with sand and silt.

Osorno Volcano:
Osorno volcano is a symmetrical, glacier-covered stratovolcano in southern Chile, rising above Todos Los Santos and Llanquihué lakes. Osorno is one of the most active volcanoes of Chile. Historical eruptions have often produced lava flows. Many eruptions have occurred from both summit and flank vents and fissures, the latter mostly on the west and SW sides. Lava flows from its eruptions have reached Todos Los Santos and Llanquihué lakes.

While its historic activity was dominantly effusive, many explosive eruptions which generated pyroclastic flows and surges have been identified to have occurred during the past 14,000 years.
