I can’t stop thinking about Lake Natron in Tanzania. A highly toxic volcanic lake that can disintegrate skin on contact. Graphic images contained in this post. Not for the squeamish #lakenatron #volcano #volcanology #toxiclake #tanzania #calciumanimals #creepy #creepycool #volcaniclake

See this?? This is a photo of the sand on the shore of the Salton Sea. Except that it's not sand. What looks like beautiful white sand beach from a distance is actually fish bones. #poisionedwater

*Sunrise* at the *Crater* of the active Volcano *Ijen* in East Java, Indonesia. 🌄🌋🇮🇩🙋🏼‍♂️ #sunrise #again #goforit #adventure #toxic #volcano #active #ijen #ijencrater #banyuwangi #explore #walkaround #gopro #picture #sun #clouds #bluesky #toxiclake #poisonous #travel #asia #traveladdict

Set off just after midnight to walk up Ijen crater, Banyuwangi 🌋📐👣 A really steep uphill walk, but totally worth it!! Walking down the crater in the dark was pretty scary but to see the sulphur miners carrying 60kg+ up & down, you realise you have it easy. #Day16 #ijencrater #kawahijen #ijencraterbanyuwangi #ijencratervolcano #banyuwangi #java #indonesia #volcano #crater #sulphur #sulphurmine #bluefirecrater #blueflame #toxiclake #southeastasia #travellingsoutheastasia #travelling #traveller #travels #travelpics #travelgram #travelinsta #solotraveller

Post #3: In the 13th century- Baotou wasn’t here yet, but nomadic herders were. Legend says Chinggis Khan found the landscape so beautiful, he asked to be buried here. What began as a trading center grew into a township before evolving into a massive, sprawling city. After the end of Qing Dynasty (1912), Baotou became a major industrial center, casting shells for cannons, tanks, trains, planes, etc.
Strange #foodforthought: One “weapon" on display at Northern Weapons City park, is a bronze sculpture labeled "Mongolian Knight”- a fully-armored soldier, horse included...
.
Currently, Baotou is the main source for rare-earth metals globally, providing approx. 70-75% of the world’s supply. We use these minerals to make tech devices- like cell phones, magnets, TVs, computers, cars. One side-effect from the mining is the birth of a huge nightmarish radioactive toxic lake (aka “Hell on Earth”) just outside the city, visible on Google Maps. The lake has displaced farming families in the region and it grows bigger every year.

"Do you dream of mesmerizing electric blue fire streaming down a mountain during the night? A turquoise, tranquil, but highly toxic lake? With a sunrise that leaves you in awe? With various shades of pink and purple as a backdrop? Being enrobed in sulphur clouds, breathing into a gas mask, making you look like a soldier on a mission? Passing men carrying up to 90 kilos of sulphur in baskets on their shoulders for hours? Is that what you have in mind when planning a hike in Indonesia?

"You don’t? Well, I did not either, but that is exactly what I and a group of my friends encountered. I will personally never forget it.
*
"Who would enjoy the Ijen Crater (Kawah Ijen) experience?
*
"Travellers who love nature and natural phenomena, but are not afraid of nature’s unpredictability. You can also see a real life sulphur mining operation that makes you humble and grateful for your life.
