Our ancestors attributed the eruption of the volcanoes to the wrath of the Gods. Today we know better than that. However, in spite of our knowledge about them, they are quite intimidating and frankly very terrifying. Here is our list of some of the stunning volcanoes of the world.
The second highest mountain of Ecuador, Cotopaxi is an active volcano having more than 80 eruptions to its credit. Revered as a sacred mountain by the local population, Cotopaxi is part of the Pacific ring of fire – an area prone to frequent volcanic activity. An entire tourism industry has sprung up around the mountain with climbers attempting to scale its peak.
