Sollipulli Volcano is located in central Chile, 60 km NE of Villarrica. Explosion craters and scoria cones are found on the outer flanks of the caldera. A series of domes are located at the eastern and southern caldera rims.

The volcano was the site of a large plinian eruption 2900 years ago, and is considered a hazardous volcano despite its smaller size than neighbouting Llaima and Villarrica.
