As a result of the May volcanic eruption and earthquake, the road around the volcano has been closed by more than half, only two observation platforms have been opened. Smoke during the day is also small during the Spring Festival. It is estimated that nothing can be seen at night, so it is not in the evening. The crater is very large and still smoking. It can't be approached. It can only be seen from afar. It's too far to take pictures.
The Kilauea Kilauea Kilauea, the most active volcano on Earth, has been spewing magma every minute and every second since 1983. When a crater with a diameter of nearly 900 meters appears naked in front of us, when we stand on the completely solidified lava plain, when we meet such a vast sky with our naked eyes on the top of Mount Maunakaya, we have no regrets.
New ground fissures and craters emerged as a result of the Kilauea volcano eruption in May, and the old crater collapsed as lava ran out. Currently, volcanic parks are closed, unable to go on foot, and can only take helicopters or cruise ships to watch spectacular geological activities. There are two kinds of transportation to watch volcanoes and lavas: cruise ships and helicopters. If you take a cruise ship, the original 30-minute trip time has now become 1.5 hours, plus watching lava into the sea, you need to stay at sea for 30 minutes, the whole journey takes half a day, and endure long sea turbulence, one boat in the morning and one boat in the evening. Helicopter flight time is only 45 minutes, can see the same spectacle, and more secure. The cruise ship's price-performance ratio is really not high, maybe it's only ten dollars cheaper per person.
During the day, only white smoke was seen from the crater. In fact, at night, the red fire would tell you that the volcano was active and not dormant. The crater link must be there. From the southern slope of Kilauea, you can drive all the way to the seaside. All the way south, you follow the magma all the way to the Pacific Ocean. When you reach the cliff at the elephant's trunk, you should be very careful because the waves are high and the wind is strong. At this time, I am afraid that people are still a little bit good, too slim may be blown away by the wind. Everywhere on the road is the scene after the eruption of magma, with each small sign bearing the date of the year.
Kilauea, which erupted in early May, is still erupting on a large scale. Unfortunately, the volcanic park is still closed. The disaster area is really large! Volcano tour. The volcano I see with my naked eyes, I don't feel the need to take pictures. It's totally different.
Mauna Ulu was formed in the 1969 Kilauea volcano eruption. By the time the eruption stopped in 1974, it was 400 feet taller than the surrounding land and buried an old crater link due to the accumulation of lava. Two typical lava forms formed by different volcanic eruptions can be clearly seen here. There are obvious differences in the figure below. One is a smooth surface, the other is relatively rough and crushed.
