Fly GeysersGeysers and Hot Springs are those which erupts hot water continuously.  These are present around the world in 1000 places.  ‘Fly Geyser’ is very special among them.  Fly geysers look like artificial but they are made naturally.  Hot water gushes out of ice cream cone shaped smooth rocks.  These rocks are around 12 feet height and water from them erupts up to 5 feet height.  Tourists throng this place to have a look at these fly geysers. These are situated in Nevada State of America.

Earlier this land was just like any other land.  A person bought this land in 1916.  A well was dig in that land but it was left like that as there was no water.  In 1964 water started springing up in the well and after some days the well started erupting hot water.  After examining the water it was found that the water contained many minerals.  Gradually the minerals in the water started solidifying around the well.  Shape of the ice cream cone around the well is caused by Calcium Carbonate and Sulphur-di-oxide gave it red and green colour.  Fly geysers look like a volcano made with plastic.  Many organizations tried to buy this land from the owner and convert it to a tourist place. But the owner does not want to sell the land.

Inner parts of earth in some places have Lava.  The water layer in that place becomes hot because of the temperature of lava.  This increases the pressure and water erupts from the cracks of the earth.  These are called geysers are hot springs.  Temperature in these geysers could be up to 140 centigrade.

  • There are around 500 hot springs in Yellowstone National Park in America.  The biggest hot spring ‘Steam Boat’ is also here.  This erupt water to a height of 400 feet.
  • A hot spring in New Zealand erupted water to a height of 1,523 (higher than the Eiffel Tower) between 1899 and 1904.
