Antartica's Mt. Erebus is the southernmost active volcano on Earth. Located inside are numerous intricate ice caves.

PhD students studying volcanology on Mount Erebus have photographed these ice caves. According to the students, the caves are otherworldly creations.

Hot gasses traveling up through cracks and fractures in the volcanic rocks surrounding the Erebus summit have created an intricate system of ice caves all over the mountain, said Kayla Iacovino, one of the PbH students, on her Science Friday blog.

Below are some of the most stunning pictures of the inside of ice caves of Mt. Erebus posted by Kayla Lacovino:
