CLIMB NYIRAGONGO VOLCANO
Come to visit Nyiragongo, one of the world's most beautiful and active volcanoes, is a large stratovolcano. This type, also known as a composite cone, is the most picturesque of the volcano types with gentle lower slopes that rise steeply near the summit, and then break to reveal the smoking caldera.
The summit stands at 3,468m (11,380 ft), has an average diameter of 1.2 km (0.7miles), and holds a deep crater. In the center of the crater is the world's largest lava lake. It is so bright that on a clear night, the glow can be seen not only from Goma but also from Rwanda
In the most recent volcanic eruption of 2002, a fissure opened on the south side of the volcano sending a lava flow toward the city of Goma, covering one-third of the city's airport runway, and reaching Lake Kivu.
