We will see a lot of fumaroles, fuming from the crevices and small cones of brimstone, bubbling mud pot, boiling and gushing geysers. On the eastern walls of the crater to the bottom the glacier descends, bringing pressure on the fumarole field - there is a struggle of the elements of ice and fire.
