Mud Pots

There are two areas where you could observe the mud pots on the trail. One of them looked like a little lake (Laguna Fumarolic) that bubbled every few seconds or so. Further down the trail, is Volcano (little volcano). This part of the mud pots is really active and it’s constantly bubbling which is very nice to see. Once you walk out of the forest, you encounter this everlasting landscape. All you see is the mountain range, forest and clear skies ahead of you.
