Inside the Volcano
Grab this unique opportunity to enter inside the crater of the Thrihnukagigu volcano.
This is the only place in the world where you can enter a volcano’s magma chamber. The sleeping volcano is a unique natural phenomenon and this experience will open your eyes to a whole new world. This journey is a fascinating one, as after 45-50 minutes (3 km) hike up to the top of the crater you are lowered down to the bottom of it in an open cable lift. The enormous crater has an astonishing array of colours to show you, and the circumference is equal to that of 3 basketball courts!
During the excursion knowledgeable and experienced guides are at your side to ensure your safety.
