Unusual volcanic

Craters of extinct volcanoes and passive - round land subsidence caused by ancient volcanic processes. Quite often, they are filled with water, but may be coated, dense vegetation. Because of their inaction, these craters have undergone many changes caused by atmospheric and human factors. Unusual and beautiful volcanic cones, traces of human activity, lush vegetation and colorful crater lakes - the main reasons why many tourists visit these extraordinary sights.Diamond Head
