Moss at Lakagígar (Craters of Laki)
Laki or Lakagígar (Craters of Laki) is a volcanic fissure in the south highlands of Iceland,. Lakagígar is the correct name, as Laki mountain itself did not erupt, as fissures opened up on each side of it. Lakagígar is part of a volcanic system centered on the Grímsvötn volcano and including the Þórðarhyrna volcano. It lies between the glaciers of Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull, in an area of fissures that run in a southwest to northeast direction.
