The mountain range running diagonally through the right side of this orthorectified image can be divided into two parts: the Olaroz Grande (above) and Olaroz Chico (below). The range is located in the Susques Department of Argentina’s Jujuy Province, just east of the Chilean border.

Olaroz Grande reaches heights of over 4800 meters, while the aptly named Olaroz Chico is lower at between 4200 and 4400 meters. Located near the mountains is the similarly named Salar de Olaroz, a salt flat.
