Reading, watching, and knowing facts and places of the Volcano Eruption is exciting for many people, but have you heard of the Volcano eruption as a spot of tourist attractions? If yes, then have you tried or wish to visit them?
Hawaii’s Volcanoes National Park shows off a prosperous past full of ancient Hawaiian mythology, archaeological antiques, and fascinating tales. If you’re a history fanatic you must visit there. This has two most active volcanoes in the world know as Mauna Loa which is 4,170 m high and the other one is Kilauea which is 1,250 m high. Both of these are over the Pacific Ocean.
Kilauea is an active shield volcano in the Hawaiian Islands that last exploded between 1983 and 2018. Kilauea is the most active of the five volcanoes that jointly form the island of Hawaii. Placed along the southeastern coast of the island, the volcano is between 210,000 and 280,000 years ancient and emerged above ocean level about 100,000 years ago. On May 17, 2018, the volcano explosively exploded, tossing ash 30,000 feet into the air and destroyed the surroundings including Hawaii’s largest natural freshwater lake.
If you happen to visit Hawaii, shouldn’t miss the live experience of such a mind-boggling spot of attraction.
Hawaii’s Volcanoes National Park is accessible 24 hours a day, every day of the year. The Kilauea Visitor Center is tracked down on Crater Rim Drive off of Highway 11 between the 28 and 29-mile marker south of Hilo. The visitor center is opened everyday between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. It may take 1 to 2 hours to roam the entire park depending on how much time you take to stay in a place.
