The ‘hot list’ is comprised of volcanoes of the world which can be confronted by humans whether by foot, bicycle, car or even snowboard.
In an article entitled Hiking into Hell: Volcano trekking Spots, the author, Shira Levine wrote on the Fox News Travel section that at nearly 4000 feet the steep incline to reach Mount Liamuiga’s crater is one of the most challenging of the 18 volcanoes dotting the Caribbean.
Mt. Liamuiga is a stratovolcano located in the North West Range of St. Kitts, rising to 3792 feet above sea level. It has had four Holocene eruptions and two unconfirmed historic eruptions in 1692 and 1843. The prehistoric eruptions range from 2320BC to 150 AD, Levine further added.
The ambiance of the inner section of the volcano, fauna, the route, and duration were also highlighted in the written piece on Mt. Liamuiga.
“Inside the crater a plummeting panorama of lush greenery and a gleaming lake tempt only the highest skilled hikers to dare climb down” Shira told readers.
Tourists usually visit the inactive Mt. Liamuiga as part of their leisure stop in St Kitts-Nevis.
Three other volcanoes that made the ‘Hot List’ are Mount St. Helens in Washington, USA; Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland and Cerro Negro in Nicaragua.
