Yasur volcano trip: Easy, but needs caution!

Adorning the Tanna island of Vanuatu, Mount Yasur is a live volcano that is constantly erupting lava daily from a height of 361 m. Nestled on the shore besides the Sulphur Bay, the Yasur volcano is near the taller Tukosmera volcano that was live in the prehistoric times. This strata volcano is in form of a cone and its slopes do not boast any kind of vegetation. Its summit is almost circular that has a diameter of 400 m. There are two interesting reasons as to why one would like to visit the Yasur volcano. First, it is very easy as well as safe to reach to its crater; second, the mountain has been continuously erupting accounting for many times per hour.

Dwelling on the Big Island of Hawaii, Kilauea is paradoxically the most simple to approach volcano that is only at a distance of 15 miles from the towering Mauna Loa volcano. Do not be that surprise to know this because Hawaii itself is formed from the lava of the volcanoes.  Contradicting the belief that the shield Kilauea volcano is the part of this latter volcano, it has a unique magma chamber and is nestled in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The volcano has  [...]
