This place is amazing. There are a lot of different mud pots that happily bubble away, and you can get very close. There are also other areas where the steam is coming out of sulphur in the ground. Right next to this area is a...More

Otherworldly! I had seen photos but this was just so cool. Once you get past the smell (move through the steam quickly, but watch your step) it is so cool to wounder around. The mud and different colors and the bubbling hot spots make you...More

Boiling mud pools, sulfur smell, boiling water, colors of the ground from yellow to read to light blue. Difficult to believe we are still on the Earth. Very easy to access.

No fee for parking or entrance You can take as much time as you want including a quick picture from a look out point or an hour of following a path.
