Nyamuragira volcano erupts

In Congo, the swirling plume of the active Nyiragongo Volcano beckons. Check on the security situation in the troubled country before going, but those who make the steep five-hour hike up Nyiragongo are rewarded with heady vistas of the world’s largest lava lake. Spend the night on the rim to fully experience the crater’s fiery light and sound spectacle.

Nyamuragira volcano is an active volcano in the Virunga Mountains of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
