We had a great time here. We were basically the only ones out there. Got some cool youtube videos of the hot gases coming from the ground. They had a little gift shop at the end of the hike.

This is something different from all of those museums and archeological sites. Be aware of the strong volcanic smell, this place is packed with sulfur. You can see it and you can smell it too. Go and check it out!

Went to see the place today, but it is closed. You can however look at it from a distance to see clouds of gasses emerging from the crater. Worth the visit if you are in the area

No, I did not think it was dangerous. Anything that could be dangerous is fenced off and if you stay on the designated trails, all will be well. We loved it there!
