Ausbruch des Nyiragongo 2011-12 (Kimanura): Fotos 22-25 Jan

We undertook an expedition to Nyamuragira's current eruption at the new cones called Kimanura and stayed 3 nights from 22-25 January 2012.
Thanks for granting access goes to the Virunga National Park, and to the rangers - in particular Diego - and porters who made it possible to spend time there!
