You can also gaze with wonder at the Spouting Horn. This is a natural marvel where a gush of water emerges out of the rock every time a wave rushes into the lava shelf below. The water rushes into a shelf under the lava flow and spews out of a small hole in the rock. It creates an amazing gush of water that can spout up to 50 feet in the air! The spectacle becomes even more exciting in the afternoons. This is because the water that is gushing out gets illuminated by the afternoon sun. After this, it shines in the colors of the rainbow and takes your breath away. When you visit the Spouting Horn, ensure that you do not approach it or venture out into the lava shelf. It is dangerous and you can get hurt.
