The dormant rhnkaggur volcano (yeah, good luck trying to pronounce it!) is a unique natural phenomenon. By putting up the necessary gear and equipment, weve created a tour that opens the door to a new world. And it really isnt that complicated to experience it, only an easy 40 minute hike to the crater and then the guts to descend 120 meters/400 ft to the bottom of the crater in an open cable lift.
