  • A lovely area. Make sure you stand around and watch the geyser in action! Amazing to see the power nature has! Don't be scared and make sure you stand in the path of the landing water!! The steam and water will warm you nicely!!
  • Popularly known as geyser. Such an interesting place to visit. Stop here for 30 minutes while going on Golden circle. You'll be welcomed by rotten egg like odour of Sulphur as there is geothermal activity all around the place. You get to see one of it's kind phenomenon here Highly recommended
