Ethiopia Package (Erta Ale Offers)

Ethiopia’s most spectacular volcano is Erta Ale, the ‘Smoking Mountain’ of the Afar, whose 613m-high caldera of crumbling black rock contains the oldest of the world’s six semi-permanent lava lakes. Bubbling at temperatures of more than 1,000˚C, this ellipsoid cauldron of black-and-red magma is a truly mesmerizing phenomenon, as violent red fountains of molten rock spurt tens of meters in the sky, accompanied by nose-searing waves of ammonia gas.
