Mud volcanoes’ name depicts something related to “mud and eruption”. This kind of volcanic eruption involves mud, gases, water, and slurries. This is not molten lava eruption but hot mud released from the earth.
Earth is composed of several components, sometimes it releases hot magma, molten lava, sometimes hot springs, sometimes volcanic gases as happened in geothermal energy, and most important mud volcano. After an eruption, these mud volcanoes turn into landforms and increases the natural beauty of the earth with unique features. Any natural phenomenon, not involving disaster, attracts the attention of knowledge seekers.
Like hot springs, one amazing fact to know about mud volcanoes is, some are not hot enough to cause burns rather you can sit in certain mud volcanoes of low temperature and take a mud bath. Some believe these mud baths are good for the skin because their composition is rich in natural minerals.
