Recommendation by Lemi
You’ve seen what lava can do to a landscape, now delve into where it all comes from. The Thrihnukagigur Volcano is the world’s only volcano where you can enter the magma chamber. The thrill of descending into its dark depths still comes from the feeling of imminent danger, but you can rest easy as you’re safe to roam around the now-dormant volcano. Travel companies like 3H-Travel lead tours of Thrihnukagigur called “Inside the Volcano.” The course to the “center of the earth” begins in an elevator that drops into the cavern. The 400-feet trip down is a true test of grit. Your reward: a once in a lifetime experience in the heart of a volcano. Shining a light on the rocks reveal colorful stone walls that envelop you, save for a little crevice where the elevator and a little sunlight break through.
