Putana (also known as Jorqencal or Machuca) is a stratovolcano on the border between Bolivia and Chile. It lies immediately NNE of Cerro Colorado, about 6 km (4 mi) north of Volcán Escalante, the northernmost member of the Sairecabur complex and 14 km (9 mi) south of the Cerros de Tocorpuri complex. Intense fumarolic activity occurs at its summit, and a solfatara (see fumarole) can be observed in the main crater.
