Argentina Volcano Update

Posted By ErickPrillwitz on Jun 16, 2011 at 5:49PM

Just to let to know that the eruption of Puyehue Volcano is not affecting Hotel Antumalal, nor Temuco Airport or the close ski area at Villarrica Volcano (actually the whole Argentinean Patagonia and even Buenos Aires are under ashes!!!).

Contact the property direct for latest information.

News from The Telegraph in the UK

The volcano, dormant for decades, has been spewing clouds of ash more than 6 miles high for the past ten days. Northeasterly winds have blown the ash into neighbouring Argentina where flights have been severely disrupted. Lake Nahuel Huapi is Argentina's largest lake at 210 square miles and it lies in the eastern foothills of the Andes. The Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcanic chain located about 575 miles south of the Chilean capital Santiago last saw a major eruption after a magnitude 9.5 earthquake hit the country in 1960.
