Tungurahua...Ecuador`s Most Active Volcano
This past week the seismic activity at Tungurahua were at low levels. A few sporadic long-period earthquakes were related to small emissions from the volcano. There are tours every night that take you to a good vantage point to view the fiery displays. There is no guarantee that there will be an eruption or that if there is you will be able to see it. At this time of year there are generally clouds hovering above the crater witch makes viewing the emissions impossible. The tour is only $4.00 and if the clouds clear you can get beautiful pictures.
