4 Ijen Volcano, Java

In Indonesia, you can actually see how rancid-smelling this volcano is, 
as plumes of yellow steam billow from the sulphur mine that operates around the volcano’s acid crater-lake. 

Spare a thought for the workers who spend their days hacking chunks of rotten-egg-smelling sulphur from the mine – work so bad for the body that, if exposed for long enough, the fumes can dissolve teeth. Also, maybe resist snapping this sight – sulphur can corrode a camera within minutes.
