Nyiragongo Volcano: The biggest lava lake in the world !


Contributor and pilot Yassin Skartt created this amazing drone video of Nyiragongo Volcano in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, one of the most spectacular natural sites in the region of Sub-Saharan Africa.  It's in the Virunga Mountains, just west of the country's border with Rwanda.  With an altitude of about 3.5k meters (around 11.4k ft.) above seal level, the mountain is home to a lava lake which varies in depth but which at times is the largest such lake in the world as measured by volume.
