Patilla Pata is located NW of Nevado Sajama (this latter is in the lower center of this NASA image, with north to the top right corner).
|Elevation||5,300 m (17,388 ft)|
Patilla Pata is a stratovolcano in Bolivia. The date of its last eruption is unclear, but it is unlikely to be during the Holocene as the mountain is heavily glaciated. The composition of the volcano is largely andesitic, but there are also a number of basaltic lava flows.
