This Peace Pole was planted at the foot of Volcán Lanín in Junin de los Andes, on the border of Chile and Argentina.
The Peace Pole was re-planted in May-2010; it had fallen from a snow storm.
Lanín is an ice-clad, cone-shaped stratovolcano on the border of Argentina and Chile. It forms part of two national parks: Lanín in Argentina and Villarrica in Chile. Although the date of its last eruption is not known, it is estimated to have occurred within the last 10,000 years.
