Eruzione vulcano di Nyamuragira 2011-12: foto 22-25 gen

We undertook an expedition to Nyamuragira's current eruption at the new cones called Kimanura and stayed 3 nights from 22-25 January 2012.
Thanks for granting access goes to the Virunga National Park, and to the rangers - in particular Diego - and porters who made it possible to spend time there!

Thunderstorm clouds come in from the west, forcing us to retreat in the blue hour. A barren tree skeleton reminds of heavy scoria fall here during the strong fountaining phases weeks ago. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
