Erta Ale Overview

Erta Ale, the most active volcano in Ethiopia, is situated in the northeastern part of the country on Afar Region near the border with Eritrea.

It's a basaltic shield volcano very isolated and hard to reach that seems to be active since the last bigger eruption in 1967.

Recent activity, eruption in 2005 and lava flow in 2007, caused some disturbs and deaths on local residents.
