It was very unfortunate as it was raining. We barely could see anything in the valley. There were a few spots with small fumaroles and some people even touched the bubbling water

Nice mountain view, just like painting. The volcano really near. Windy but warm. A lot of local went hiking at this place.

Nice little walk to breathe in the sulphides from the volacnic air vents. Remarkably similar to Hell Valley in Noboribet-su in Hokkaido. The sounds was much louder than the ones i experience in Japan. Also look at the arrow bamboo used by the indigenous for...More

Quite an experience visiting this location. The air is thick with the overpowering odour of sulphur. It's definitely a sight to behold seeing plumes of steam and volcanic gases venting out of the side of a hill. Not as good as Jigokudani in Noboribetsu (Hokkaido,...More
