Lower Geyser Basin, Yellowstone National Park

Lower Geyser Basin hosts a flurry of thermal activity, creating impressive spectacles across Yellowstone's landscape. Spanning over 29 sq km (18 sq mi), the geyser discharges more hot water than any other feature in the park. Watch as hot steam nearing 100 C (212 F) shoots up into the sky, reaching heights of 45.6 m (150 ft). A stark demonstration of nature's power and beauty, the area can be explored on decked trails meandering between active spots.

  • Nothing to complain. This place is just amazing. You can see huge smoke coming out of geyser far away. Most geysers are close to each other so you don't need to walk far to see all of them.
