you can safely stand on the platform but will have to swallow the sulpherous fumes
a hotspring to hot to have a dip
a mumbling mudpot
the water in this stream is hot
better stay on track
some tourists wear protectives to save the shoes
Hverir
The geothermal area of Hverir is located east of Lake Myvatn on the base of Mount Námafjall.
 
Bubbling mudpools, fumeroles of hissing steam  and boiling hot springs set the tone in this strange landscape.
The strong smell of sulpher is everywhere you go and you better watch your step so not to damage your shoes or worse. It's easy to get burned here.
 
Hverir is a major tourist attaction so most probably you will not be alone when you visit here.
