A lofty “ice volcano” has popped up in southeastern Kazakhstan, where the hollow cone is erupting with sprays of spring water that freeze into teensy ice crystals that fall again onto the brilliant-white cone. 

The ice structure sits on top of a hot spring, according to Business Insider, which sprays water out of the top like an erupting volcano. It is not actually a volcano, which forms through the eruption of lava, ash and gases, but the buildup of frozen spring water means the structure reaches an impressive height of 45 feet (13.7 meters), according to Business Insider. As such, the tower of ice is sometimes called an ice volcano.
