Couldn't really see much when we got here on the ropeway, and, though our guidebook had said there were walks to do, these were all closed, I'm assuming due to the volcanic gases being emitted.

First time close to a volcanic mountain which is great for photo shot with nice scenery. However, due to change in weather, it is very cold, windy and cloudy. Just a quick stop before continuing the trip to the cruise.

I think yes, a lot of people came here taking their children too! Just don’t stay too long and since there are nothing really interesting either. Just take a look for 1 hour then just leave for next destination
