Volcán Quisiquisini, Parque Nacional Lauca, Región XV, Arica y Parinacota, Altiplano chileno, Chile.

Chungará is a lake situated in the extreme north of Chile, in the Altiplano of Arica and Parinacota Region. It is the 29th highest lake in the world (and the 10th highest in South America). It's near the volcanos Parinacota (20,827 feet or 6,348 metres) and Pomerape (20,413 feet or 6,222 metres). It was formed 8000 years ago, when a major collapse of the edifice of Parinacota produced an avalanche of 6 km³ of debris which blocked drainage pattern, thus creating the lake.
