Very nice lava channel, I feel that it is really the supernatural craftsmanship of nature, the style is completely displayed by the scenery, it is really awesome
The Thurston Lava Passage is located at the end of a trail to the east of the crater link intersection. It is a tropical rainforest filled with local tree ferns and myrtle trees.
The Thurston Lava Tube (Thurston Lava Tube), which is full of tropical rainforest, is said to be formed by the rapid flow of volcanic lava. There are various interesting plants around.
Hawaii not only has beaches, but also has a wealth of geographical knowledge and treasure wealth. It is famous for its volcanoes. It not only has active volcanoes, but also specializes in the Volcano National Park. Therefore, I visited a great spectacle formed by volcanic activity, volcanoes. Melting hole. The Thurston volcanic cave is formed by the lava from the eruption of the volcano. It is very unique. When you see this cave through the tropical rainforest, you have a more surprising understanding of the natural wonders. The whole tour is about 15 minutes is not very long, but Very special geological phenomenon, amazing and very strange
Continue to climb up the mountain from the rainforest environment. After crossing the road, it is the Thurston Lava Tube. Should it be translated into a magma pipeline? In short, it is the cave left by the circulation of magma from the underground (actually, this stuff is everywhere in Hawaii)
Hawaii not only has beautiful beaches, it also has a wealth of geographical knowledge and geographical treasures. The volcanoes here are also very famous, there are active and extinct volcanoes. This lava channel is located in the volcano park. It is a historical testimony and the only cave in the Hawaii National Volcano Park. After entering, you will admire the miracles of the world, the miracles of nature, and it is very spectacular.
When a volcano erupts, a large amount of magma flows slowly from the crater to the surroundings along the terrain. The surface layer cools down faster after contact with the air. When the surface layer of the lava flow begins to harden and the lava below is still flowing, the lava channel Just formed. After the internal lava has dried up, the outer shell is still there, remaining to form the lava tube that can be seen now. From the crater, continue clockwise along Crater Rim Drive to an intersection. To the east, there is a trail extending in a tropical rainforest. At the end, it is the Thurston Lava Tube cave. There is only a small section of the cave with lights, and a flashlight is needed behind it.
Cross the tree-lined path and walk to a small bridge in the reserve park. The other end is connected to a tunnel formed by volcanic lava flowing down quickly from the top of the mountain. This is the famous "Thurston Lava Tube" (Thurston Lava Tube). It is said that it has a history of 500 years. At that time, hot magma passed through the mountain. As the top and sides of the mountain cooled, the magma flowed to form a shell, and the lava continued to flow to the coast. Therefore, it became a hollow shape. Lava tunnel. After years of change, green ferns grew outside the tunnel entrance. The space in the cave is large, humid and cool.
There are many lava channels in Hawaii, and this is the larger one.
