Wonderful volcanic cave that you have access from a series of stairs to a sulfur lake with and active fumerole. Depending on the CO2 levels, you have access nearer the lake. We were the only ones there so totally enjoyed ourselves.

The descent into the volcanic cavern is quite a unique experience. It's incredibly cheap, but then most things here seem to be very reasonably priced. The stone turret and winding steps down are interseting in themselves, but the anti diluvian feel to the cavern was...More
