Nevados de ChillÃ¡n is a group of stratovolcanoes located in the Andes of the BÃo-BÃo Region, Chile, and is one of the most active volcanoes in the region. It consists of three overlapping peaks, 3,212 m (10,538 ft) Cerro Blanco (VolcÃ¡n Nevado) at the northwest and 3,089 m (10,135 ft) VolcÃ¡n Viejo (VolcÃ¡n ChillÃ¡n) at the southeast, with VolcÃ¡n Nuevo in the middle. VolcÃ¡n Viejo was the main active vent during the 17th-19th centuries, and the new VolcÃ¡n Nuevo lava dome complex formed between 1906 and 1945, eventually growing to exceed Viejo in height by the mid 1980s.
