The volcano can be seen clearly from the township. Makes for spectacular photos with the contrast of the black sand beach, beach goers and their colourful umbrellas and the volcano in the back ground.

The side of the mountain was swept clean of its trees that tumbled down the slope. Now there are simple grainy black sandy trails to walk through - interesting, but eerie and bleak within view of the smoking crater!

We visited the city of Pucon where this volcano is, not just the volcano itself but all the surroundings of this place were just fantastic. So many things to do.

Is it possible to climb to the Summit of Villarica yet, or is it still closed? I'm hoping to do the climb in January and would like to know the current status of the closures.

Desde já agradeço se puder ajudar
