It took only one eruption for the air communication to turn into a chaos, the airlines to [[#|lose]] nearly $ 2 billion, and tens of thousands of passengers to stay at the airports. Meanwhile, the world has plenty of killer-mountains, each of which can wake up in any worst possible time for the tourists. Here are the 10 most dangerous volcanoes that can deliver no less trouble than the notorious Eyyafyalayokudl, which has only recently spoiled the May vacation for a huge [[#|amount]] of tourists.

This is the highest and most active volcano in the European territory. Potentially, it constitutes a serious threat to people [[#|living]] in villages and towns of the whole island of Sicily. Most terrible eruption occurred in 1669, when lava destroyed several villages in the vicinity and the “absorb” part of Catania – the ancient city on the eastern coast of Sicily. In 1992, two streams of lava threatened the whole [[#|municipality]] with a population of about 8000 people. And only a year ago the volcano started to cast even more intensively

This “mountain of fire” is most dangerous volcano in Indonesia, erupting regularly, about once in ten years. Since the XVI century, it is constantly killing people, villagers in the vicinity. In close proximity to it is the city of Yogyakarta, and some villages are located even on its slopes – at a height of 1700 meters. In 2006, about 5000 people were [[#|killed]] and 200,000 were left homeless. It’s quite interesting why the villagers are staying so [[#|close]] to the mountain as the disaster abilities are obvious? While anyways this is not the most dangerous volcano for Indonesia.


Papandayan, Indonesia

This volcano located on the Indonesian island of Java represents a serious threat to a [[#|large]] amount of territory. In 1772, it has completely destroyed 40 villages, situated on its slopes, more than 3000 local residents were [[#|killed]]. The volcano is still [[#|considered]] very dangerous and settling in the vicinity of it is not [[#|recommended]] and even there are some charges for it. After all, emissions of smoke, earthquakes and minor eruptions occured in 1923 and 1942, and in 2002 recorded quite [[#|strong]] aftershocks.
Nyiragongo, Congo

This is probably the most hazardous of the African volcanoes. Nowhere else on [[#|earth]] the volcano appeared to have such huge lakes and rivers of lava. In 1977, the current lava killed 100 people, although, according to some sources, the number of victims has reached [[#|thousands]]. In 2002, another eruption of the giant has resulted in the city of Goma, at least 45 people [[#|died]], 15% of buildings were destroyed and 120 000 residents were left homeless.
Popocatepetl, Mexico

A total of 70 km from Mexico City is hiding a [[#|born]] killer under a glacier. Rising to 5400 meters above the sea level, it represents a serious threat not only to the capital (where some 9 million people live), but also for numerous other towns and villages located nearby. This is the most ruthless of the 20 other huge volcanoes of Mexico. In 2000, tens of thousands of people were evacuated, and its eruption has caused even the melting of the glaciers. The locals believe that the volcano eruptions are the demonstration of the gods’ anger. Thus the only thing that can prevent volcano eruption is to behave properly.
Teide, Spain

The third largest volcano in the world is located in the paradise of Tenerife, on one of the Canary Islands. And although it is currently inactive, in the near [[#|future]], the risk of eruption of this mountain is very high, and then its destructive power can be compared with Vesuvius. International Association of volcanologists [[#|called]] it one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. When the main reasons for such a conclusion might be too scientific, still it’s consideration is in our legitimacy.
Sierra Negra, Galapagos Islands

One of the largest volcanoes in the Galapagos archipelago, Sierra Negra last erupted in 2005. The Galapagos Islands are considered by scientists of one of the most active volcanic regions of the world. Over the past 200 years there were recorded more than 50 eruptions. So this unique nature reserve is regularly under threat of destruction which leads to the idea that nothing can be judged by the first impression. It is especially true when talking about the natural beauties.
Yellowstone, Wyoming, USA

Although the last eruption of this volcano occurred about 640,000 years ago, the area of hydrothermal geysers that spit on the surface of the hot jet and the mud is considered potentially dangerous for the US. Volcanologists say that if the volcano will erupt, this will lead to the catastrophic consequences for a large part of the United States and Canada. However, experts predict that this will not happen even in 90000 years.
