There is a looming hilltop under the white smoke, and the air is filled with a strong smell of sulfur. This is the impression that Xiaoyoukeng gives us! About a two-minute walk from the parking lot, you can see the spectacular scenery. One side of the mountain has collapsed due to high temperature and sulfur, while the other side is still covered with green grass. Such a contrasting beauty makes tourists stop here to take pictures. .
A small oil pit is apostvolcanismThe landscape terrain area is the residual volcanic activity phenomenon in the later period of the volcano. The residual thermal energy in the ground continuously heats the accumulated pressure of the gas, so that the fumaroles emit high-temperature sulfur gas and steam throughout the year.
The fumarole that is farther up the mountain cannot be approached, so we can only take pictures with it. When we walk to the Xiaoyoukeng trail, there are several smaller fumaroles, which can be watched carefully at close range. The scalding hot mud water will feel a very hot warm current when it passes by! We both could not help but tense our nerves as we walked down the stone steps, we were afraid that if we accidentally slipped, we would burn and cry! If you are bringing your children to play, you must be very careful. There are no fences near the small fumarole.
In addition to the topographical landscape of Xiaoyoukeng itself, due to the high altitude here, the viewing platform on the side can also see the distant landscape.Bamboo Mountain, Datun Mountain, Qixing MountainandSmall Guanyin Mountain, the field of vision is very broad!
