Kalkani Crater

After the tour we took a walk around the Kalkani Crater. The walk takes you round the top of the old volcano. The last eruption was less than 20,000 years ago. On the information board it said, “Could this land erupt again? Perhaps, but don’t run – we should get plenty of warning!” But it didn’t tell us what warning we should be looking for.

From the top of Kalkani we could see the Undara Crater. It didn’t look like much from the distant but I guess Kalkani didn’t either. I had been expecting something more like in the movies where it looks like it was going to explode at any moment. Both Kalkani and Undara looked like green hills. Not that I am complaining. I really don’t think I would have liked to walk around the top of a live volcano. Ok I know I wouldn’t like to walk around the top of a live volcano. In fact I doubt you could get me anywhere near a live volcano.

It was a lovely walk. We could see for miles but we didn’t just look out. We looked at what was around us as well.
