Erta Ale is active volcano in the Danakil Depression, Ethiopia, 600 meters above the see level. It has the most impressive and the longest existing lava lake in the world. To reach the crater we had to travel for 4 days on mostly bad or nonexistent roads with 4WD vehicles, but the reward was visiting two of the world\'s most stunning places: Erta Ale and Dallol (covered in separate video). The video includes footage of the volcano\'s lava lake at dawn, at night, and also night time lapse. nel.
