We stopped at this spot after the sulphur caldron whilst out driving in the park. I have to say that this side of the park is more acidic and the more pleasant smell of eggs cooking elsewhere in the park was replaced by this more rancid pungent smell. I found it quite hard to cope with the smell, but placing my jumper over my nose and mouth and breathing through that got me through it. The pungent smell here at mud volcano was only in a few places, not as bad as sulphur caldron. I liked the variety of the features here, seeing the trees that had literally been cooked. At the end was the dragons mouth spring - that was amazing, this steam puffing out of what looked like a cave, the waves lapping out of it and the roar of the dragon. There really could be one living in that hole! ;) I think kids would love that spring, very stimulating to the imagination.
