A team of scientists and researchers went through the bank's largest lava lake in the world.

Previously, this has not been done.

In 2010, a team of scientists and explorers set foot on the shores of the lake of boiling lava in the depths of Nyiragongo volcano, which is located in the heart of the African Great Lakes region.

The team wanted to walk along the shore of the largest lava lake in the world.

Photographer Olivier Grunewald was a meter away from the lake, which gives us the opportunity to enjoy a unique view of molten lava.

Nyiragongo volcano rises to 3470 meters above sea level. At a depth of about 400 meters there is a lava lake

Nyiragongo volcano is one of the eight most dangerous volcanoes in the world, the lava can flow from it at a speed of 40 km / h

Lava lake in the volcano Nyiragongo is the biggest in the world. It is estimated that it contains about 8 million cubic meters of lava.

In 1977 and 2002, the crater lake of lava erupts and destroys most of the city of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
