Acid Lakes! Magic Volcano Kelimutu and three crater lakes of varying colors

Volcano Kelimutu and three striking summit crater lakes of varying colors / HD1080

Kelimutu ([k��li��mutu]) is a volcano, close to the small town of Moni about 50 km to the east of Ende, Indonesia in central Flores Island of Indonesia.

The volcano contains three striking summit crater lakes of varying colors. Tiwu Ata Mbupu (Lake of Old People) is usually blue and is the westernmost of the three lakes. The other two lakes, Tiwu Nuwa Muri Koo Fai (Lake of Young Men and Maidens) and Tiwu Ata Polo (Bewitched or Enchanted Lake) are separated by a shared crater wall and are typically green or red respectively. The lake colors vary on a periodic basis. Subaqueous fumaroles are the probable cause of active upwelling that occurs at the two eastern lakes.

I do believe the title was actually longer than the video, but what you saw was surly breathtakingly beautiful. We need more video's like this not necessarily for Snotr but for the world in general, because the way things are heading on this planet it will be the only safe way to see where we live. The latest (in fact probably not even the latest now) atrocity in France, an 84 year old Priest ritually knifed to death at his alter by another deluded member of Isis, how brave can you get :(

Video quality was poor ,very grainy and blurry which is why I down-voted it. There is
probably a better quality version of it out there somewhere.8-)
