Top 5 the Most Beautiful Volcano Lakes in the World

By | On + -

This list will focus on any volcano made lake; Volcano lakes can occur in a few different ways: The first would simply be a crater filled with water.

Another way that these lakes can form is that when a volcano erupts, such large amounts of magma are released that the emptied magma chamber beneath it collapses under the weight of the earth, thus forming a large indentation called a caldera, which eventually fills with water.

All these lakes have an explosive past, a beautiful and majestic present, and a potentially devastating future. They each hold their own story.

Lava Lakes

 Even though these are not lakes, in the general sense, they are still of volcanic origin, and very interesting, so I decided to add it. Lava lake is a rare occurrence, which can happen in three ways.

Either a new vent erupts enough lava just to partly fill the crater, Lava flows into a depression or a new vent erupts for several weeks, building a crater around its self.

The result is a lake of molten lava. There are currently just 5 lava lakes on earth: Erta Ale (pictured above), Ethiopia; Mount Erebus, Antarctica; KÄ«lauea, Hawaii; Nyiragongo, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Marum, Ambrym, Vanuatu.
