Dormant volcano, Iceland
Thríhnúkagígur Volcano is a dormant volcano is in Iceland. There are many dormant volcanoes in Iceland. This one is special because, you can go inside. Don’t’ worry, its inactive since 2000 years. It was a normal volcano in Iceland’s Blue Mountain range, called Bláfjöll. However, its last eruption, nearly 2,000 years ago, had some very unusual consequences. Usually, after an eruption, the magma chamber of a volcano, free of pressure, remains full of lava that cools into solid rock until the next eruption. If the magma chamber is fully emptied, the volcano will generally collapse in on itself.
To the bewilderment of scientists, neither of these things happened in Thríhnúkagígur. This volcano behaves totally different. It seems that a rift beneath the chamber drained all the remaining lava, leaving behind an enormous chamber, covering an area of 3,270 square meters (35,200 square feet). To give you a clear picture, the statute of Liberty could stretch her limbs inside here. The volcano is attracts explorers across the world for its colorful interiors. Visiting Thrihnukagigur Volcano is very easy, visitors are lowered in on an open elevator. From there you can then marvel at the multi-coloured chamber.
