This steadily shapes a scaled-down spring of gushing lava with a rich, smooth mud hole at the top.

According to accessible records, the principal noticed a mud spring of gushing lava blast on Baratang island was seen in March 1983 in Nilambur town. Called jalkis by local people, these mud volcanoes have been inconsistently ejecting from that point forward.
