Volcanoes can be equally fascinating and frightening at the same time. We had a history of a violent volcanic eruption that had a significant impact on our planet like the huaynaputina volcano of Peru that occurred in the year of 1600; the volcanic eruption was so deadly that it killed thousands of people in an instant, it was so horrible that it blew away the upper portion of the volcano. It also killed millions of people because of the feminine it caused in Russia.

Instead, we will look into the most beautiful active volcanoes around the world and beautiful volcanic activities. Most beautiful active volcanoes sound weird and exciting simultaneously, but the mesmerizing beauty of beautiful active volcanoes can trap anyone in its unique charm.
