Ljótipollur – Landmannalaugar, Iceland

The Ljótipollur is an explosion crater in Iceland in the Landmannalaugar area not far from Frostastaðavatn. Ljótipollur roughly translates to Ugly mud pot, but contrary to the meaning of ots name, it has really beautiful red colored walls and is filled with greenish water that seems to contact many trout. A short side road from the intersection of the Fjallabaksleið and Landmannaleið leads to the top. Other explosion craters in Iceland include Kerið , Eldborg and Hverfjall.
