Inferno Crater Lake

In 1886 New Zealand had its deadliest volcanic eruption. Approximately 2 cubic kilometres of material was thrown into the sky. This was one of several craters in the Waimangu Volcanic Rift Valley. Inferno Crater is one of the largest geyser like features in the world. The water temperature ranges from 35 to 80 degree C. The lake is around 30 metres deep. Sadly the camera struggled to capture the steam coming off the lakes surface.
