Aguas Calientes Volcano or Cerro Aguas Calientes, also called Simbad, is a cone-shaped stratovolcano located 5 kilometres (3 mi) east of the Lascar volcano and directly north of Laguna Lejía, in Chile's II Region (Antofagasta). Also in the area are the volcanoes Acamarachi and Chiliques.
A small crater lake is found within the Aguas Calientes summit crater, making it one of the highest lakes in the world. The crater lake is tinged red, due to the presence of large populations of microorganisms.
