Kamchatka Ice Cave and the Mutnovsky Volcano
The ice cave you see here is found in the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia and was formed due to hot springs surrounding the Mutnovsky Volcano. These springs would flow beneath the glacial ice and carve out this surreal landscape. The roof of the cave is thin - allowing light to come through - because the glacial ice near the volcano have been melting over the past years.
The Mutnovsky volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the south Siberian region of Kamchatka and it actually lies inside of a caldera and consists of 4 separate stratovolcanoes (layers that form a conical volcano). Most of the area is covered by glaciers which allows for the hot springs to flow underneath them to form the caves. The last eruption of this complex volcano system occurred in 2000, considering that it surprising that this is considered a tourist destination but it is definitely a beautiful landscape.
