Lassen Volcanic National Park Tourist Attraction

Lassen Volcanic National Park

Lassen Volcanic National Park is placed among the top California attractions. Located in the northeastern part of California, this United States National Park is most recognized for its Lassen Peak, which is the main plug dome volcano across the globe. Other than this, the park consists of two individual national monuments such as Lassen Peak National Monument and Cinder Cone National Monument.

The park is characterized by two contrasting features such as dry, blazing terrain sprawled over 106, 000-acres and cool, verdant conifer forest encircling it. If a tourist enters this park from the southern side, he gets to catch a glimpse of a completely different world. From its Venusian scape, the fiery core of the earth can be seen along with turbulent hot springs, toxic sulfur vents, cinder cones, craters, lava flows, hot and humid mud pots, crater lakes, etc.

This sightseeing spot used to be a summer campsite and a meeting venue for Native American tribes including Maidu, Yana, Atsugewi and Yahi in the earlier times. The tribes came here to hunt for deer and collect plants for making baskets. Some native people still inhabit the area near the park and provide visitors with information on the ancient history and current culture of the park.
