Huequi (Spanish pronunciation: [weki]) is a stratovolcano located in Los Lagos Region of Chile. It lies at the centre of the peninsula of the same name and close to the Gulf of Ancud. It has an elevation of 1,318 metres (4,324 ft). It has a sharp summit and reportedly "smoked" in the 1950s [1] and is made up from a lava dome complex situated in a depression of unclear origin, a postglacial lava dome Calle and a Pleistocene Porcelana volcano with Holocene parasitic cones.[2][3]
